Why There Is A Delay In The Crash

background:

we viewed a house on saturday, made enquiries on monday on access issues etc. on tuesday we went to make an offer but property had also appeared on rightmove with a second agent, at a lower asking price (137,500).

we were originally going to offer asking price (139,950) but in light of lower price with other agent we offered 138,500 with the first agent on the proviso it was taken off with both agents immediately.

first agent knew nothing about second agent. offer has been accepted and we would like to get a survey asap but we don't want to do that unless it is off the market with the other agent as well.

we don't have the vendor's contact details and we don't know how to make sure they take it off the market with the other agent.

i think it is in the first agent's interest to pass on the message to the vendor on our behalf (so he doesn't risk losing the sale) but my husband can't see why he would.

does that make sense at all?

any ideas how we can make sure the house is totally off the market?

AND THEY DONT NEED A MORTGAGE!!!!

Why are people sooooooo stupid!!!! They make an EA's job too easy!!!

I know someone who put in an offer on a house last year of 1K less than asking price.

It was turned down so they went back with an offer of 500 pounds.

Which was generously accepted.

Also a workmate recently told me he was buying a 3 bed semi newbuild and has put a

100 pound deposit down. How much is the house I ask, dont know yet he replied.

Sometimes its hard to keep a straight face!
