Curious,
That has been happening a lot lately. When you put in an offer it generally takes a few days before all parties come to an agreement on all terms. Only after that it becomes a contract and shows up as pending. So if your Realtor stated property was available,that's what she saw when she looked at the Listing.
When you like a property, you have to move swiftly. Yo have o get your offer in before someone else does.
Good Luck!

I would ask your agent to contact the listing agent directly to seek further truth and to see what the sellers "true" motivation is.

Depending on the state of the property, it is possible in this market, that multiple offers are being submitted. If the buyer and seller are negotiating a contract, it is still available and the realtor doesn't have to disclose the negotiations. Only once a contract becomes executory, does the property become unavailable with contingencies.

Hello Courious, the market in Miami is very aggressive at this time, many times, while you are making the call, the owner is accepting an offer. It has happened to my and my clients, it is frustrating at times not only for you as a buyer but for us as professionals.

It's possible that there were several offers submitted at about the same time as yours...
and another offer was accepted.

The market is truly fast right now, and you need an experienced realtor on your team - because there are other things that make your offer more appealing to the seller (which is important in the multiple offer situations)...that you might find helping you get your next offer accepted.

Hope this helps,

There is not the end of world, more and more properties are coming at the market for different reasons and maybe one of those is going to be yours.

Courios,

In this market you need to be the first to bid on a property.
You need a Realtor willing to show you new properties on the market. But you need to be prepare and loyal because if you called tons of agent you will have to do all process over and over again with every agent you contact, If you really like the property you are looking at, don't focus on the listing price, Take a look at the comps with your agent and make your best and high offer. that way you can buy a property soon.

All depends of the timeline, since different steps in a procedure have to be respected.
If there is evidence of a game, you have certainly ways to react (if you think it is worth your time).
The best may be a complaint at the DBPR, but you need to have exact proof of what you say.
Good luck

This can happen for many & varied reasons. Just like life, things & markets change constantly. Your question to the Realtor should be, "Did you present my offer to the owner"? Your next question should be, "Is the property under contract"?
