Hi Althea - Without an attorney you are stuck...if you involve another agent from another company
you will have to pay both companies. You requested another agent from the same company to take over and they refused that too. very unprofessional, unless the agent is the broker.. still unprofessional. because sometimes that happens the personalities just clash. we recently had
that problem and my manger took over.
I would call an attorney for some help perhaps the extra cost just for peace of mind may be worth
it to you for your health and nightmares. . good luck

Rhonda Holt answered:
The offer is not a legal and binding contract. Basicially, an offer just opens up the dialog with the seller to say you are interested in the property at a certain price and your terms and conditions.

If you're using a real estate agent, the agent should know the area, what's selling at what price and past sales in the area so you can make an informed decision when placing your offer. Your offer can be made directly after you see a home if you truly want it. The agent should have offer papers for you to put in an offer to the selelr. If you are a serious buyer and don't want to miss out on a certain property you want to walk with a copy of your credit report, real estate attorney and mortgage broker information and your pre-qualification from a mortgage broker. Also know your down payment amount, when you need to move.

The agent should have offer forms that they will fill out with the above information that you submitted, you will sign it, usually retain a copy and the agent will then submit it to the seller on your behalf.

I hope this answer has helped you.
