Bizarre Seller's Realtor

We had the strangest thing happen the other day when we were touring a home. After we were done, the seller's realtor called ours and screamed at her, saying she didn't have permission to tour the home (of course she did, as evidenced by e-mails, etc.). We genuinely liked the home, so our realtor tried to explain our potential interest in making an offer, and the seller's realtor hung up. So bizarre. Our realtor had mentioned earlier that he had been very rude to her when coordinating the showing, and was also very hard to understand. The listing now does say "no showings until further notice."

No idea what happened there, but the seller's realtor cost them an offer. I tried google-ing the realtor, but it's a very small company (possibly just him) and I couldn't find anything about it.

Anyone else have weird experiences when buying a home?

Re: Bizarre Seller's Realtor

  • That's really weird. Of course your REA would have had permission...how else did your REA get the code to access the key???
  • That is really bizarre!  There is just no telling.

    Not a realtor, but I went to a showing once where the neighbor from across the street came into the house screaming at the top of his lungs because the seller's realtor had parked her car next to his house.

    As in STREET PARKING, that anyone can use.

    If I were you all, I'd use this as an opportunity.  Keep an eye on the house.  Watch it drop substantially in price if the seller continues with their "no showing" policy.  You all have the advantage that you have already seen it.  Then have your realtor make a lower price offer.  Hopefully the seller's realtor will not be in a bad mood and take the call.

    Generally speaking, the only people who will buy a house with no showings are real estate investors.  They will be assuming worst case scenarios for condition...and their offer price will reflect that.
