My wife and I are looking for a home to buy, and are working with a RE agent and we ask them to schedule visits as soon as we see a “coming soon” listing on MLS. They have been doing a great job at getting us appointments. We are extremely solid financially. However, some of those houses for which we have confirmed appointments end up in contract before the first showing. How are we supposed to compete in this market, even though we have the money, if we cannot even see the property? Are we now supposed to just buy sight unseen even though the place is local to us?
Also, call me old fashioned, but if we have agreed on a schedule to visit the property, I find it quite disrespectful for the owner to get in contract without even letting me know that the visit is cancelled. I hope there is a special place in hell for sellers like this who have no honor nor respect for others.
Is anyone seeing this as well in their area?
