Just thought y'all would want to know...did the walk-through this morning and found nothing wrong. The seller's realtor didn't even come. He sent the seller's fiance! This is not the first time the seller's realtor has appeared to maybe be a little bit "lazy." He also asked our realtor to prepare a counter-offer form based on an oral agreement that he should have prepared. I'm beginning to think he just didn't want to take time out of his day to actually DO the walk-through.

I told the seller's fiance that I hoped she didn't think we were trying to be difficult and he said that she felt the same way and thought the problem was just "two little boys in a sandbox"! Had a good visual with that one!

At any rate, the fiance couldn't have been nicer. Pointed out the alarm boxes, answered my questions. etc.

Thank you for all your "words of wisdom"...at least now I know WE weren't being difficult requesting the walk-through.

Glad this all worked out for you. Seller's agent maybe needs some help. Certainly shouldn't be in real estate.

It sounds as if the seller's agent is more than just ignorant! There was obviously some type of dubious behavior and/or thoughts occurring in that agents head. Please take the time to file a complaint with the Texas Real Estate Commission at TREC - Complaints & Consumer Information Main Page. Nothing will most likely happen to the Agent but the complaint will remain on file and maybe help the next person who has a run in with that agent. If more people would file these complaints then the less than honest people will either get honest real quick or get gone real quick!

I've never attended a walkthrough when I'm the sellers agent. Why would the seller agent need to be there, or his fiance for that matter?

Because they had already taken the lock box off the house and someone had to let us in.

OP glad everything worked out! I did a walk through and the sellers actually took stuff. It was a problem. They tried to strip the house as much as possible. They took down every curtain rod (which was in the contract that all window treatments stay), they took down shelving leaving quarter size holes in the walls and the appliances were pulled out as if they were about to take them. Glad you stuck to your guns. My sellers were moving overseas and figured they were pulling a fast one.

I remember when I was purchasing a house, there was a little dynamic re: allowing us to do our walk-through - we did and found the new refrigerator and a few other items that were supposed to have left w/the house taken -- our agent contacted the seller's agent immediately and before closing, those items were back in the house -

And now as a broker, I am very conscientous about making sure that walk-throughs are done - that, whenever possible both selling agent and listing agent are present - I think it is helpful AND important.

Glad you stuck to your guns about it - enjoy your new home.

We have a concern. Real estate agent miss represented everythng. Said she had the $30,000 EMD check, wrote it twice on contract, On the walk thru the buyer was not present. We allowed preoccupancy thinking she had the EMD check, the buyer backed out of contract, now we have folk in our home that don't have a snow balls chance to buy the home (the home was being bought by someone else and they were buying it from them). Agent left original company and went to another, we never received new listing agreement and etc., etc., etc., She sent us contract and without being signed by us, sent our paperwork to the Title Company. This is a mess and help. Many more details, but don't want to take any more of your time away.

On a quick read, sounds like you've been scammed and your identity stolen. What you really need to do it start a new topic instead of tagging on to a two year old topic that is finished. You'd likely get a lot of responses and feedback when people see your topic with your own title.

Get off the internet, except for finding a good local attorney.
