It never fails that when things go wrong, the parties involved ALWAYS seek to blame their agent. You seem to be no exception. You do not:
1. Disclose the type of property you pruchased
2. Disclsoe the situation of the property purchased
3. Disclose the terms of the contract
4. Disclose the level of service agremment between you and the agent.
5. You DO state YOU did not conduct the crtical 'walk through.'
Had your agent done so, (completed the walkthrough on your behalf),,,stopped the sale due to junk...,and created a delay allowing anohter buyer to become involved you would again be blaming your agent for causing you to lose this junk filled property.
In all real estate transactions, when things go wrong....the agent is ALWAYS blamed, even when it crystal clear the buyer or seller was operationg in open defiance of established requirements. Then comes the "she lied to me about other things' usually the end result of selective listening. Those who have been in the real estate business find it increasingly difficult to keep folks from injuring themselves. They troll aggregatre websites collecting the opinions of strangers and second guess their agent at every step. Then when the agents best advise is ignored, the agent is second guessed at every decision point,....well, the outcome is always the same....WHEN THINGS GO WRONG..blame the agent.
Welcome to the Sun Shine State. It is a rocky beginning, but you'll love it here. Just returned from the "Keys" this weekend. For those who have been there I'll add, 'the Keys will give you something to crow about." Put this incident behind you and move on. At some point in the future the benefit will become apparent.
Best of success to you,
Some agents would say whatever they can to make the sale but not all. If you have a substantial amount of proff you can pursue the agent further but that's just more time, money, and headache.
Contact me if you need the junk removed.
I live in miami and I know of many junk removers that charge WAY less than $3000 to move the junk out.
Contact me further and we can discuss it. Also if you need a property manager I can provide that service as well.
Yes, you might be able to talk to a lawyer and get satisfaction, but the truth is that you probably will save money by just getting the stuff hauled away.
If you can't be present during walkthrough, try to get a friend, relative, or at least someone who won't personally benefit from the sale to attend on your behalf.
What to do now...get multiple estimates on junk removal.
What country were you moving from?
Contracts in my area call for the home to be in "broom clean" condition - unless stated "as is"......but I have no idea what your contract says.......just confused why you closed without making sure it was in the proper condition
Removal of the junk should have been included in your contract.
If it was not, and you bought as is, or this was a distressed sale, unfortunately, the removal of the junk is on your shoulders now. However, as one popular song goes: "One man's junk is another man's treasure" - there are people who will remove your junk for free, if it is sellable or usable in any way.
About what happened with your closing:
Before the closing, we do the walk though, even if the client is out of town.
You can also request your agent to take pictures of the property prior to closing - to make sure there are no "leftovers".
Hope this helps,

You should have done a final walk-through prior to closing. This is often times, and most wisely, done literally on the way to the closing. The purpose of the final walk-through is to make sure that everything that was agreed to be left in the home (i.e stove, washer/dryer, etc.), was. It is also to make sure that the property is in broom clean condition, and unwanted/leftover items were removed.
It doesn't sound like this was done - so shame on your real estate agent for not making this a mandatory step.
Hope this helps!
