What does your listing contract say?? 2 years seems like a long time to have a listing agreement. I would talk to him/her and see if you can get out of it.

Dan Tabit answered:
It depends. If the seller had full knowledge of both offers and chose the other for a business reason than it's perfectly legal. If the seller's agent was reducing their commission or doing something else that allowed the seller to Net essentially the same or more, it's probably legal (I'm not an attorney so I will leave some room here).
If the listing agent withheld your offer and the seller was not made aware of it and was only presented with the lower offer, that allowed the listing agent to profit, this would be a serious issue. Client interest must come first and not presenting all offers in a timely manner is at the very minimum a breaking of the Realtor Code or Ethics and most MLS Rules. Someone from NJ could speak with more authority as to the details.

Look at it this way, if your agent just listed the house without making any recommendations I'd be more concerned! Recommendations are a byproduct of lots of experience with what works and doesn't work in many go with the flow and do what you can...if you're unsure and have not signed a listing agreement, shop around and get another "experienced" agent in there and evaluate their recommendations...if you see any overlap, you can expect these recommendations to be helpful. Afterwards, go with the agent you believe represents your needs best. Tom Hinz ... more

Hi Jane,

There are two types of Surveys. One which is a full survey and another one is Survey Certification. You must speak with your lender on which one they require.

New York Home Buyer answered:
Is there an update on this case or similar cases?

My builder of a new construction ignored important filing requirements with the city even long after i pointed them out - hoping I get scared of the increasing rates and get out of contract due to delays. They even asked me to get out a few times. After almost two years of being in contract the builder says they have the CO now and want me to pay up more for additional expenses they incurred due to city building regulations changes.
In November 2013 the builders attorney signed an addendum to the contract which would reduce the price of the house for each day of delay after the end of 2013. I thought of not pressing for it since I think the builder is also losing out money by waiting. Now as the prices are going up the seller's agent is saying that the seller/builder will walk out of closing if they don't get more money for their construction expenses (not agreed to before) at closing. Anyone knows a good attorney who dealt a similar case?

Joan Congilose answered:
If your home has been on the market for a very long time your agent may think that the listing is stale and has lost interest at its current price. Your agent is probably thinking that by relisting it as a new listing at a new price will spark a surge of new activity rather than just lowering the price. It might be a good idea to discuss their thinking and plan of action. ... more

Dear John,
Buying a short sale can be a very lengthy experience. Some of the things that can slow down the short sale process are: 1)if the listing Realtor is not familar with short sales, the process will be very lengthy as banks are very specific about their requirements and time frames. 2)the current seller must cooperate in order for the short sale to continue to move forward. If the seller does not cooperate in a timely manner, the listing Realtor may have to start the process over numerous times. Hope this helps.........if nothing else it will afford you the opportunity to ask your Realtor the questions posed in this post. We wish you all the best. Feel free to reach us at (908) 912-5298. In the event we are on the phone, please leave a voice mail and we will return your call promptly. ... more
