Not sure I understand what you're looking for or why. The mortgage principal amount is under $8K? Or the home is valued at $8k?? Are we missing some zeros?

Why an assumable mortgage? I'd be happy to discuss what you're looking for in greater detail.

Hello First Time,
There are ways to go about saving money on a new build. Savvy agents know them. Many agents don't. Negotiation is a good skill to have and many people should use a third party to negotiate for them. But negotiating is just part of the home buying experience.

Staying on top of all the things you need to do in a purchase of a dirt-start of inventory home is reason enough to engage an agent. Many agents do not have the experience and knowledge to guide you. Others are too busy.

I've worked builders and I've worked deals with agents. Some are worth that commission. Others, not.

I worked for several national brand name companies, including Richmond American Homes and DR Horton over a period of 15 years. Incidentally, I've been in real estate more than 25 years. I'm happy to work with first-time buyers and repeat buyers.

Best,

yes, you have means of recourse, but it can be very hard to prove your case. the realtor may say that the offer made by the other buyer was better qualified (bigger downpayment, faster closing, etc). the bottomline is that the highest priced offer is not automatically the best offer. though to be fair to you, it does seem like the selling agent was steering an offer from a preferred buyer to the seller. if you submitted your offer through a realtor, that realtor can file a complaint. if not, you can contact the local board of realtors or the state agency that oversees real estate ... more
