People often jump to conclusions without getting the facts straight first!

Although here's what probably happened. The agent picked up your flyer and didn't read it thoroughly and told her client there was this great house for sale and wow, what a price. The buyer probably said, "Oh, gee, isn't that a rental park? Why would you provide me with a rental park home when I specifically said I wanted a fee simple home?" And now the agent feels like a jerk and needs to take it out someone else!

I had similar experience.  I completed a report, the company belonged to Fidelity says I can not state

Under positive comments about the neighborhood:

" Desirable residential neighborhood with many custom built homes." I asked what is acceptable?  I can not comment on your question.  Can I talk to another person. Customer service hang up.

I think I will not use Fidelity escrow and title for awhile.
