Did you sign a contract? If not, i’d start looking for a new agent again. I’d find that pretty unacceptable.

@Ms. Kitty:  It sounds like he’s too busy. My 1st realtor I was told was great, but she was super busy… so busy she asked ME questions about the houses we looked at & was always late & it always took a few days to meet with her at a house (a few weeks would not be okay with me!). I fired her & went with someone else. My 2nd realtor was awesome, she made time for me, got back to me right away always, she told me things I didn’t even know to ask about the houses & she found my house (knew it would be a good match even though I passed over it on her list). All that to say, the difference between the two was amazing & changed my experience. I was in a hurry too, as I would’ve been homeless & also had a deadline for the $8k first time homebuyer credit back in 2010.

Also a few houses I looked at, I think my 2nd realtor had put either a 24 or 48 hour response time to accept my offer. That’s only 2 days! If the selling agent was too busy than I wouldn’t get a response in time & would likely already be putting in another offer on a different house.

I would go with someone else who has time for you. 2 weeks just seems like forever!

@Ms. Kitty:  find someone else since you haven’t signed a contract.

I would find someone else. We sort of fired our first one because we were a little impatient, and wanted to move in the process a little faster. Basically, as buyers, we were looking for someone that was excited to get is in a house asap. No exceptions! I even told him we were testing him, which came accross as a joke but we were serious. We ended up staying with him, and he knew we “fired” the other one.

I’d find a new realtor. Two weeks is ridiculously long to wait to see a house IMO.

I agree, no contract means you’re free to move on!
