If the property is 25% smaller than advertised, this would affect the value as land is a major part of any properties value. The asbestos issue is different. A seller may not know they have it, or could have forgotten or chosen to not disclose, but in any event you now know and get to decide how to proceed. I'd suggest you find out if it needs to be removed or sealed by some means and what the costs involved are. Based on this you may or may not want to move forward.
Depending on the terms of your contract, you may be able to renegotiate your terms due to the new information and should consider it. Your agent sounds like an obstacle verses a aid to getting information and formulating a plan. If they aren't helping, discuss it with their broker or just terminate the deal, if your contract permits, find another higher quality agent and move on.
Sorry you're having difficulties.

Interesting. Those scores are based on results of users rating an area on a number of factors. I'm surprised to see that cleanliness scored only 4/5 stars too!

Property taxes can vary greatly due to age of home as well as improvements homeowners have made during ownership. Two properties built at the same time may be next to one another however one homeowner may have made improvements requiring township permits. When the township reviews the improvement the home may receive a new assessment therefore raising taxes. This is just one of the variables that currently exist in Bucks County. When purchasing a property a Realtor can pull property taxes of neighboring homes as a comparative to help analyze a purchase decision. ... more

Chris, I hope you have met with a loan officer by now. The deadline is fast approaching and it is a good idea to sit down with a loan officer and get pre approved if possible. it is going to take longer for the process so allow plenty of time from time you find a house to settlement date.
Once you know for sure that you will get a mortgage you can work with a good real estate agent .
