Foreclosure in Suwanee>Question Details

Sharmeen, Home Buyer in Alpharetta, GA

is there a way to find out if my offer on a foreclosed home was submitted?

Asked by Sharmeen, Alpharetta, GA Thu Feb 19, 2009

I put in an offer on a foreclosed home in December and have a feeling that the selling agent did not put in my offer, since the house is still on the market and is now re-listed for a lower price.
Is there any way of finding out if he put our offer out there? He keeps insisting that they have many offer at the asking price, but the house is still on the market months later.

Do you mean that you believe your own buyer agent didn't submit the offer? Did you have an agent representing you?

I am based in Cherokee County and work the Alpharetta area often. First, if you have submitted an offer on a property, then you may have had an agent. I would not want to interfere with that relationship if so. If not, then, of course, I would need more info to answer your question intelligently. If you presented an offer like the gentlemen suggested below to a listing agent then your interests were not represented, but it doesn't mean the offer was not submitted. Not having a fiduciary responsibility doesn't mean the agent isn't ethically obligated to treat you fairly as a "customer." If you can provide me with some more information I can answer your question better. If this house does sell to someone else, you may have learned a valuable lesson of the need to be represented by a highly qualified real estate professional that will represent your interests and work for you! I think I might just know one who will :-).

Give me a call and I will promise to do the very best I can for you!

Did you present the offer to the listing agent (who's name appears on the listing or lawn sign)? I don't practice law, but my interpretation of our roles as agents is that all offers must be presented to the owner. If you worked directly with the listing agent, you are considered a customer and the listing agent has no fiduciary responsibility to tell you anything at all. In many cases, we agents will have to overcome several barriers to determine if the offer was accepted, much less presented.

Working with your own agent usually costs you nothing, but it can help you with frustrations like this. Please call if I can be of assistance.
