What can my REALTOR® do if the other REALTOR® in a transaction is not communicating with them?
If your REALTOR® has been unsuccessful in their efforts to communicate with another REALTOR®, your REALTOR®’s broker may contact the other REALTOR®’s broker to open the lines of communication.
A broker is a designated REALTOR® who supervises REALTORS®, and has the ultimate responsibility for their agent’s actions.
Can I find out if anyone else placed an offer on the property I want to purchase?
Only with their seller’s approval can REALTORS® disclose the existence of offers on the property.
If a competing offer was accepted on a property I have an offer on, can I find out what the accepted price was?
The information becomes available to the public the day a sale is recorded. You can check with the county in which the sale was recorded for the selling price.
What is dual agency?
When one broker either individually, or two salespeople working for the same broker, represent both the buyer and seller in a real estate transaction.
Why did the seller get my earnest money?
If the funds were being held at a title or escrow company, and the terms of the contract were not met within the provisions of the contract, the title or escrow company made a decision to release the earnest money in accordance to the contract provisions.
