The listing agent is very well known in our area for not being organized and not doing her job correctly. We had called several times before submitting an offer to find out information on the house and after ten days, she FINALLY called us back only to tell us that she couldn't answer ANY of our questions because we already had an agent. We had our agent call her to get our questions answered, and the listing agent never returned her calls. We finally decided four days ago to have our agent submit a cash offer and two days later, they asked for highest and best so we upped our bid to be $2000 over asking price. We called the listing agent only to ask that she send us a confirmation that our bid was submitted, and she said that she could again NOT speak to us because we were represented by another agent. We had our agent call her and request confirmation and once again she isn't returning her calls or emails. How can we be CERTAIN that our bid was actually submitted to Homepath? Also, if the listing agent stated that she set a deadline for highest and best, does this mean after the deadline that no other bids may be submitted? Thanks so very much for any and all responses!<br \><br \>2 replies Fri, 08 Aug 2014 17:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Homepath-Do-we-have-the-right-to-ask-for-confirmation-from-listing-agent-that-our-bid-was-submitted/553809/ 2014-08-08T17:50:00Z At closing ( Feb.this year ) we were given credit for 2013 taxes. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/At-closing-Feb-this-year-we-were-given-credit-for-2013-taxes/536109/ Now a month before taxes are due we get tax bill for a $1000+ more than they gave us.

Have not heard back from them in several weeks. i assume that is not good news :( My husband and I are looking to buy our first home. We are a young married couple with children. I have not so great credit bc of student loans and such, which I am working on cleaning up, my husband has nearly no credit...so I am thinking a contract sale may be our only possibility??? (not sure) I have looked into&nbsp;several first time home&nbsp;buyers sites but cannot figure out how to even get started..I finally was able to get a reply from a live person with Fannie May, who reffered me to the local Mortgage agent, but again have not heard anything for awhile! our current lease is up in the next 2 weeks! We do not want to rent any more! We want to provide a stable and promising future for our children. Can ANYONE HELP?
