Asked by Trunks1227, El Monte, CA Sat Sep 14, 2013

i wen to a open house me and my wife looked at the house and we liked it the agent selling the house said we have a offer 5000 more then the asking price.
but if you like it we will selling it to you for the asking price and not show any one the house. so we said OK next morning we went in to there office and singed the paper work and dropped off the good faith deposit when we did they tried to get us to go threw there lender but we said no we all ready have our own lender. so that night they called my wife and said that the seller does not want to go threw our lender and my wife said well we told your that we have out own and if your seller does not like that then the deal is off. then there lender called us and my lady said no and she was getting madder 1 hr later the seller agent called again and said OK the seller said your lender is fine but my lady was so mad at what they did trying to fish us in to gonning with there lender that she said no we don't want the house any more .

In my opinion you are pretty much tied to the first agent for this property. Even if you get another agent to write a new offer, they will probably lose their commission to the first agent. When you tell a new agent the situation they will more than likely not write a new offer.
Good luck,
