13 Jul Should we drop our buying agent?
My wife and I recently viewed a home that we liked, but didn't love. We thought we would put in an offer slightly below asking, which they predictably countered for full asking price plus closing.
We told our agent that we wanted to retract our offer as we didn't want to feel like we were overpaying for a home we didn't love. However our agent and banker continued to work on it through the night and sent us a long email why it would work financially because the price difference wasn't that big.
It feels like we're being pressured to accept the counter offer when we already expressed that we weren't interested. Should we drop our agent or are we overreacting?
