HI there....technically, yes, you could be at the final walk through. It is customary in most areas of the country to reserve this time of the Buyer though - that means it'd be nice to request to be there versus just showing up or being there. This is usually a good and emotional time for the Buyer as well - they start to "mentally move-in" and if you are there, they have a tendency to suppress animation re: what is going to be "theirs", feeling as if the soon-to-be-former-owner is still nesting there. Anyhow, while you could be there, it is usually a better idea to not be and let the process take its course, re: your moving out and someone else calling it their new "home". Hope this helps. Cheers!... more
Continuation of the question: Our lender and realtor do not understand the reason for all the rush & neither do we. We were led to believe it was the "mean bank". But that doesn't make sense because why would the bank throw away a good buyer. The seller's realtor "was able to convince the seller to sign an ext for just 2 more days". So we are still waiting, but the lender still doesn't think it can go through by then because he's waiting for a few conditions to clear. The seller's realtor is very rude, will not discuss any of this with anyone....as though it's beneath her and how dare any of us question her!! We just want to know what is going on? It sounds very vague or suspicious.... more

If the listing agent was also representing you, you may have a case for damages. If the listing agent was separate from your buyer's agent, there is no breach of agency, as the listing agent has zero obligation to you. Unfortunately this happens quite often. Sometimes it is simply the other offer is better financially, or has better terms, but all too often the seller or agent steers their own client to the property. If you think something else happened, contact the Department of Real Estate dre.ca.gov.
