I would think there is some way of backing out of the contract since she lied to you about what you will and won’t be getting for your money.

Buying a home really isn’t as fun as people say!

Realtor bee here.


Perhaps you should mention that you feel like this is a total bait and switch and will be speaking with the Better Business Bureau and TN Real Estate Commission.

I do freelance photography for a realtor and you CAN break up with a realtor for just cause.  You have to make sure you do it in writing and enumerate your issues.  That said, in this case, you’re dealing with the contractor’s representative, so the only thing you can do is get your own realtor to represent you in this case, maybe going directly to the builder.

Buying a house is NOT fun! If I had my way, I would have happi;y rented for the rest of my life! The process totally sucks! A GOOD realtor is your biggest asset!

Tell her good luck and to come back with a real contract if the deal falls through (which it very likely could).

No seriously, you need to have your agent deal directly with her boss and explain what is going on. It may be that they have another offer, and an offer is an offer, but it sounds like she is not very professional and someone at the company needs to be aware of what is going on as a common courtesy.

I had a very stressful time buying our house. We didn’t know how much to bring to closing for our down payment until 45 minutes before we had to sign! I was going insane. Glad to hear things are better for you, I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
