you don't actually have that obligation. It would be nice, and that would be the polite thing to do... in fact i would hope that you would give me that courtesy, if it were me....
but you are NOT obligated to do so.
And if there's no agreement, besides not being obliged to the realtor that Chase recommended to you, you are also under no obligation to use Chase. It pays to shop around. There are various programs that not all lenders have access to.
If you are first time buyer with limited funds, you may even qualify for home buying assistance that several cities/counties offer.
Don't feel obligated to use the first bank you talk with, just as you are not obligated to buy the first house you see.
Good luck, and have fun shopping!
P.S. Often online services dont update listing as fast as local MLS service .I know that can be frustrating.
If not you are free to chose a local realtor .it is our job and also our pleasure to help you fond a home
A serious agent enjoys their job and gets satisfaction out of helping.
