    You should know and be prepared. If this is your first time buying and you have 3.5% down, there's no way listing agents are going to present your offer. Are they supposed to, well yes...Can you ask for a signed page 8 to prove that the seller saw your offer? Yes, but you wont get it.....
    Listing agents are not REQUIRED to show you a signed page 8, you'll never know if your offer, even if it was a resonable offer and it met the guidlines stated on the MLS....

    Listing agents creating a bubble?

  • DOM/CDOM What is it? And why it's so important.

    DOM = Days On Market
    CDOM= Cumulative Days On Market 

    PLEASE check the stats of your listing agent and see just how long and how many times a property has changed status. This is SO important! 
    Cancelled escrows? Property on and off "Hold" this is a problem and if you're trying to do a short sale, this is seriously what you need to be looking at.
