I have encountered a situation recently that really has me concerned and would appreciate your input on this. I made a bid on a short sale property in Manteca and a week later received a counteroffer from the agent stating that the hot tub wasn't staying and that the property was a short sale. We signed the counteroffer and no boxes were checked that multiple counteroffers had been made.
I had a concern about the fact that the stove was removed a few days later and called the agent. I received a call back stating that we did not get the property, even though the counteroffer mentioned anything about that. I could understand a legitimate mistake, but when I confronted the agent about this, they could not really give a good reason as to why I was sent the counteroffer without boxes being checked.
A loan agent I worked with told me that they got through the whole loan process before and when they were ready to fund the agent told the title company that they sold it to another person. Is this a common thing that is going on? Your comments are greatly appreciated on this matter.
