Asked by Ncr, Atlanta, GA • Thu Jun 16, 2011
We've been following a short-sale that we liked, however, we've only seen pictures of it. Initially we asked our buyers agent to look into it, she told us that it was "pending lender approval, NEXT". After having been taken offline for a few weeks, it recently re-appeared. The status was still "pending lender approval". We were curious what that meant, so my wife filled in the online contact form and asked if the house was still available. The response from the listing agent was, "we have an offer on the home that we're working with, but you are welcome to put in a backup offer".
Ok, when we forwarded the message on to our buyers agent for assistance, our agent got PISSED OFF, "how dare you contact the listing agent behind my back. Don't you trust me? Do you want to go it alone?".
Is that normal behavior? The listing agent says, "go ahead, submit an offer", we tell our agent about it, and get verbally abused?
Makes me want to deal with the listing agent directly. No?
