Asked by Jp, Georgia • Thu Jul 3, 2008
I put an offer on a house in GA on Monday evening after going to see it twice the same weekend. The home is in great shape & a foreclosure. We saw no other agents cards on the counter all weekend and no traffic in the subdivision to indicate anyone was even looking at any of the 7 houses listed for sale in the subdivision. The house has no appliances and there was a plumbing issue before the bank took it over. I put an offer in for 18k less than the asking price and on Thursday evening the bank countered for 10k more than the listing price. My agent says they have multiple offers and to go in with our best and highest offer as well as continue to shop so as not to lose our momentum. Isn't a counter offer for 10k more than the listing price false advertising? How can they list it for one price and counter for more than the listing? Is there some place to go to complain about this or investigate this? This is my first home and offer & has been a HORRIBLE experience.
