A contract is a contract. The agent has most likely started to spend money on advertising. Look to see if they have a cancellation clause.

Lowball in relation to the asking price, but competitive with market value? Not foolish at all.

If a house is over priced, it's over priced. Paying more then you should for it, simply because someone else owes the bank a lot of money, or wants to pay off a student loan - or whatever else - is foolish.
