For some reason, I show up as in Bel Air, MD. I'm actually in NJ. I've asked my attorney but got no answer as to why this Remeemable water lien is on the property. The last time we spoke, he had sent a fax to the water/sewer dept for clarification, but I've heard nothing since. This was about 2 weeks ago. I just never heard of a Redeemable lien. ... more

An accepted offer is not binding in NJ. until it is under contract and all contingencies have been met. The seller has the right to continue to find buyers and the agent is obligated to do so. Once under contract the seller should only get back up offers. ... more

“the greedy realtor tried to get us to up our offer 5k because she got another contract”

O.k. Bob - Do the math. If a house is sold at 400k @ 5% that is $20,000. commission
At 405k = $20,250. After the agency split of 50% ( example) the agent stands to make a maximum of $125 by increasing the offer up 5k.

Really? You think the agent was trying to get your price up $5,000 to make an extra $125 commission?

How about the agent was presenting you with the fact that there is another offer on the table and if You wanted the house.. maybe you should make a better offer. It is what we do. We have to present all offers to the seller and to be fair, we need to tell all the offers that they need to give their best shot. Period. Would the Realtor like to say.. yeah, this is it .. we are taking this offer , probably. But we cannot we do what the homeowner wants us to at the moment. Maybe the other people offered $5000 more than you did. That may work out to $30 per month over 30 years for you.. but to the seller it is $5000 more and that is where the decision lies, not the Realtor.

What you feel in your “mind” is not how it works. A contract is a contract when all agree., You are entitled to feel as you wish, but it is not how selling a home works. Before you make assumptions about the greedy Realtor that wanted 5k more. Think about what you are saying.
