I'm dealing with a realtor in Missouri who puts off buyers and sellers if she is not doing both deals. This sounds unethical to me. This agent is tying up a home that she is the listing agent on. She is also the selling agent on the Home of the Person looking to buy her listing. This way she gets commission on both deals. Her buying client can't get a sell on their current home. So this agent is telling my agent the deal is going to happen. We see the property is listed as active contingent for over a month now. This agent is not being truthful. I see post where she has done this before. What is my recourse? ... more

You can, but the listing agent may not be willing to pay that new agent a commission. You should have hired a buyer agent before seeing homes. The listing agent could get angry and that wont help your offer. ... more

MCM_STL answered:
The best possibly solution would be for your current agent and prior agents to communicate. There probably is some potential for your original agent to make a claim to the commission if you end up buying the first house. You initially saw it because of them and there is plenty of legal prescient on that agent's side.

The reality is that most agents aren't going to damage their reputations buy suing a past client - especially when it's probably over a few thousand dollars. If both agents here are ethical, customer-oriented individuals, they'll be able to work out a mutual agreement on how to make sure they both get something for the time they put in.

James Hagarty answered:
possibly. a lot will depend on how bad your credit is, how stable your income is, how much income you have in relation to your debts, and so on. think of it from the stand point of the person selling or renting you the house - how do they know you will be able to keep up with the housing payments if you have poor credit? do you have the ability to put down a significant deposit and/or pay an "option consideration fee" for the rent to own agreement? you may want to consult with a local lender who can work with you on repairing your credit until you can qualify for a mortgage. good luck, and happy hunting! ... more

Unfortunately, in order to buy a home, a lender will require "decent" credit of at least 620-640 credit score and decent income, and a good debt to income ratio.
