Help needed trying to empathize with my agent. I’m currently under contract for a new construction home after losing out on 4 pre-owned homes. For context, we came in 2nd out of 42 offers on one and lost two to high cash buyers (I didn’t even ask about the 4th). The new construction option is acceptable but in a not-great location and they have been really difficult to work with. I wouldn’t have chosen this option under normal conditions. It’s the flimsiest of contracts so we agreed we’d keep our eye out in case another good option came along. I also made double sure she’s getting her full 3% commission from the builder if we go with that.
Fast-forward a month and I have had to do all the advocating for myself with the builder. She just occasionally texts me and asked if I’ve gotten any updates, I updates her, then she says nothing back.
I recently saw a beautiful condo in the development I had originally hoped to buy in. It was stunning but I’ve never seen anything in there for remotely close to their asking price. The asking put it a bit out of our comfort zone. So I asked her if she thought that was a reasonable list price. She said “Who knows in this crazy market!?!” So I followed up with asking if she knew how much the last one went under contract for and she said “no.” No follow up. Nothing. In the past month this is only the second home I’ve asked her about and no longer contact her about anything related to working with the builder. My financing is through underwriting for that, which I took care of ASAP. I feel like I must have done something to make her upset but don’t know what. We’ve only been at this for about 2.5 months. I believe her exclude buyers agreement is up at the end of June.
Tl;dr I think my agent hates me. Don’t know why.
