the phrasing of your question indicates you saw the home through a listing agent, not a buyer agent. If this is the case, did they disclose to you that their fiduciary responsibility is with the seller, not you? Of course they'd like you to buy the home, but it is now their job to get the best terms for the seller not for you. For instance, if this home is going for above what other comps reflect it is his duty to try and justify and defend that price... whereas a buyer agent should be using that as ammo to negotiate a lower price. More importantly, if there is a BETTER deal out there... this agent would never advise you to get what would be a better home and/or deal, where a buyer agent is agnostic about the home you buy. It does alwasy amaze me that buyers continue to go directly to the sellers representative instead of using their own, which typically costs nothing.
