Actually, to point out to everyone. I did not "go around my agent. My agent knew what was happening and told me to go ahead. Also to help you understand. I have worked on commission my whole life and was a licensed agent in WA State. When I called the listing agent they were aware of all of these things. The comment about who gets a commission or who doesn't and whether or not that is my business. It is my business if I am not being represented correctly as the agent listing or not does have an obligation to the board of Reality and myself to provide me with the correct information. Now, to further my question because there was no room to include it in the initial question; There is a 2nd mortgage on the property and I and my father, who is giving me the cash to pay for this upfront, were told by the Listing Agent and my Agent, now, through the same company, that we would offer the 2nd mortgage holder $1500 to start but up to $3,000. The HOA fee's are $2800. The Lender has agreed to pay $380. The HOA has agreed to take $400 off right away and told me to submit an offer to the board to take off another $1300. He told me that they often accept such offers in order to get new buyers in and get the account current and paid. Meanwhile the Listing Agent sends me a Counter Offer saying the Seller is frustrated because it is taking so long and he can't sign contracts because he doesn't have a printer etc... The Counter says the Buyer agrees to pay no less then $3000 towards the 2nd and that the Seller and Lender will not make any contributions towards the HOA past due Fee's and Fines. My letter from the Lender specifically states that they will pay $338.00 so I am amending that to say, The Seller will not make... towards the HOA... What I am upset about is that I was told 1., that an offer to the 2nd had already been made for $1500 and 2. the fact that they are acting like the Lender didn't already agree to pay $338 towards the HOA. Also, that the Seller at this point is trying to do a Counter Offer and it states that if I don't sign it then the original offer is void. I should say that the time it has taken to do this is no fault of ours. We have signed every document they have given us within a max of 24 hours. It is the Seller that takes so long and doesn't have the means. The house is scheduled to foreclose on April 11, or go to auction on that date. To start with a new buyer the seller has to start all over and sign more documents again that they say they are already frustrated with signing... It makes no sense. While I don't want to loose the deal I also don't want to be lied to and bullied. I also am more then happy for anyone to get paid a commission and it may not have been any of my business before but I think it became my business when they started telling me that offers to the 2nd had been submitted for an amount and that I would have an answer on Monday only to then get a counter offer from Seller stating something different and finding out that what I was told wasn't not the truth. If you are going to come back with a hirer price fine but don't tell me that it can be done for less, not do it when you say you have and expect me to not be upset and questioning the motive.... So again, I want the house but I am not going to act like an idiot and be lead around by the nose when certain things they are doing are not right... So I am asking for advice.
