Asked by Eric, Port Saint Lucie, FL • Sat Feb 14, 2009
then the asking we gave a deposit and got pre-approved for a Mort. etc we where then told it could take up to 2 months to get answer.
after a month we received a phone call from our agent telling us someone had made a higher offer and that the house was still on the market. We where shocked we realized our mistake we did not read the contact closely enough in the addendum had a clause that the property could stay on the market and except offers. We where not told of this we would not had agreed if we knew ( our fault!) We have now put in another offer 5k over the asking price with the stipulation that the
property be taken off the market.
we where told that they would not agree to that. is it even legal to take offers on the house and not alert the potential buyer of that . it would appear to me that this is all just a game the listing agent can then just keep taking higher offers and use that with anyone bidding on the house. This unethical do we have any recourse??
