I don't know your realtor, but I know that even the realtors I trust are still inherently wanting a sale to occur, so it wouldn't surprise me if you're encouraged to stay on track.

The wait-a-week-prior thing is wary bullshit. What is their reason for waiting - cashflow? That shouldn't be your problem.

Keb's right about not worrying about the short term living solution and storing your stuff. Surely you have those Extended Stay America-type places where you can rent by the week or even month. Heck, find a small locally-owned hotel and see if they'll give you a good weekly deal - you'll feel like you're on a mini- vacation! :smt028

The issue just resolved itself courtesy of the realtor.

A) He lied to me about the mortgage lender sending my paperwork off, as I know for fact she didn't.
B) Let slip that he used to work with the seller and told me I could definitely "trust" her.

I'm right that these are both wildly shady and unethical things, right? This is my first house so I'm new to this.

Just report it to the agent's boss matter of factly without weighing in on how upset this has made you. Tell him your highly "concerned" that this may be unethical behaviour/conflict of interest and let the BOSS investigate it and get back you in say 2 business days.

The agent is going to get in trouble.

You now need to decide if you want a new agent. i would.

Yeah. I don't feel a need for revenge or anything, but I'm definitely not going to work with him again I don't think.

It's not uncommon for them to help their homies out. The lady who listed my condo for lease is a neighbor and friend of my mom. She did an awesome job too!

You should pull out TBH. Pure sketch armstrong shit right there. Break ties with that agent too. Side deals like that are just unethical. Make sure you get the necessary paperwork done though.

When my mom listed our old house in the burbs, she went with this lady who overpriced it and said we didn't need to make any changes/improvements/decluttering. She basically put no effort in and just put the listing up for us. We heard from her maybe twice in the six weeks. So my mom went to her brokerage and told her manager the problem and he gave us a release form to sign so we could unlist with them. Had to make sure all that was done because we didn't want her coming out of nowhere and trying to take partial commission from the sale.

We found out later that she severely undersold one of our neighbors' houses. Like 15% lower than the asking price. WEAK! Especially in a high demand area like our neighborhood.

We ended up listing with one of those billboard agents. He was awesome.
