Real estate offer question
Quick question. I have bank approval for a mortgage for a new home, conditional to sale of my existing home. I approached listing agent directly so far and don't have my own representative. I thought they may be more motivated as there would be no commission split. Would be offering listing price, not a competitive market but it's been discounted several times. I have my home listed privately and have had several showings and will discuss offers with two parties in the next week.
The listing agent would not accept any offers from me, as my home is listed privately and not listed with a realtor or MLS. Bear in my mind the home I'm interested in has been empty, and cared for, for 2 years. I found this interesting, fairly normal ?
