Zillow Advice: Buying Process - Details not given in listing by listing agent http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Details-not-given-in-listing-by-listing-agent/508922/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Thank you for your three ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Details-not-given-in-listing-by-listing-agent/508922/ Thank you for your three helpful answers. I am prepared to pay what I offered for the house. I am not going to recoup someone's lost equity on one sale, to me. The bank has two full price offers, one a VA, one USDA. Neither offers a down payment, and both want seller to cover all closing costs. If the bank is dumb enough to sell to someone who can walk away from the house any time in the future, having invested nothing, they are welcome to do so.

They do this in order to expose the property to a larger number of potential buyers and hope for better offers. Hope this helps. &nbsp; Wed, 28 Aug 2013 03:23:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Details-not-given-in-listing-by-listing-agent/508922/ 2013-08-28T03:23:00Z
