I would not recommend it, as you will most likely need to pay the current agents commission as well as any new agent you switched to. If they submitted an offer and showed the property to you, there is a clause called procuring cause. The current agent you are in escrow with has earned her commission based on procuring cause. I would recommend speaking to your current agents broker to try to resolve any issues you may have.

Good luck!

Have a great day,

If you make a good offer then you should be fine. I have closed FHA loans where 3.5% down was accepted. As long as you have a good agent and lender, then you should be fine. If you need a loan then I recommend you speak with a California lender like myself. I would be more than happy to speak with you to help you get the loan that you need. Well I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

I agree with you but prices have been picking up.Now being 2012. I looked at 4 properties on brokers caravan and they all were in multiple offers. It was priced at 2.1 million after they became more realistic and the CAP was 4.68% which is respectable in Santa Monica.

It could have also been pending and would no longer show up on the MLS, but Trulia still had it as active. THis happens sometimes.
