The agent told us we didn't have to hurry and we could sign the counter the next Morning. However, the agent representing the seller called our agent in the evening and said the seller received a signed counter from another party and since they already signed they're in first place. This seems really shady as no one told us there was a time competition. Is this legal?<br \><br \>10 replies Fri, 21 Mar 2014 07:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-a-seller-counter-multiple-offers-without-disclosing-the-fact-they%27r-responding-to-multiples/533193/ 2014-03-21T07:01:00Z Cost of homes and or land in this area? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-of-homes-and-or-land-in-this-area/534845/ 1 reply Wed, 02 Apr 2014 18:02:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-of-homes-and-or-land-in-this-area/534845/ 2014-04-02T18:02:00Z When buying house in hawaii from a friend who can handle the closing? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/When-buying-house-in-hawaii-from-a-friend-who-can-handle-the-closing/519173/ Is there a purchase contract form available ;can it be seen on the web?<br \><br \>4 replies Sat, 16 Nov 2013 12:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/When-buying-house-in-hawaii-from-a-friend-who-can-handle-the-closing/519173/ 2013-11-16T12:21:00Z Special Assessment right before closing, Need advice please http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Special-Assessment-right-before-closing-Need-advice-please/516900/ <div>Buying a Condo in Hawaii, Sellers Disclosure said "Not to My Knowledge" in the Special Assessment section. &nbsp;We are 3 days from CLOSING and my agent gets a letter from Seller's agent -- Special Assessment of $7000 per unit, due Jan 1, 2014.&nbsp;<br/><div>Elevators in building are always broken, letter states it take 20-30 minutes wait time to get up or down. &nbsp; Whoa !!!&nbsp;<div>My experience is I waited 10 minutes (that was awful in itself) and assumed it was Down temporarily due to maintenance.<br/><div>IS IT REASONABLE for me to request they pay this Assessment or&nbsp;<div>do a price reduction to cover the costs ?&nbsp;<br/><div>Cash deal, no loan, have met other contingenies, like I said we are 3 days from closing escrow.
