Our buyer's agent has been lying to us.
Here is the story. We put in an offer on a foreclosure and the bank responded with a counter offer within a week. The problem is that our real estate agent didn't tell us that crucial information until 7 days later. The day we found out, we told her to put in a counter offer. Today, a full TWO WEEKS later, we called the listing agent to find out that she didn't even submit the offer until today. Thus, that makes 3 whole weeks that the bank has not heard from us. Since the bank is allowed to start taking other offers after 20 days, they took someone else's offer and are working with them now. This is, of course, because of our agent's negligence. This whole time she has been saying that she hasn't heard anything back about our offers, all while never having submitted any of it. Do you think she is somehow benefitting from holding off until other offers show up? Why would she do this? It was going to be such a good investment and we are going to miss out. Should we sue her?
