I was working with buyers for over a year who suddenly decided to buy a home off of Craigslist, a FSBO in a rural area, on septic.
They called me after writing an earnest money agreement which they said they were pressured to do right away by the seller, so the seller could hurry up and make a bid on the house they want to move to.
Now that they are getting nervous about the transaction, they want to know if I can help, as I have been their agent for the past year, showing them homes every time they called.
When I asked how how the contract is going they said date had gone beyond the 15 day inspection period. ("Danger, Will Robinson!!")
They were advised by me to seek legal advice as I am in no way involved in transaction.
Had they called me prior to writing the offer, I could have represented them using a buyer -broker agreement, perhaps even saved them some money / headaches on the transaction.
