I'd check to see if the house was in multiple listings. Some brokersI recently sold my house in the SF-Bay area a couple of months back when the market was red hot. I listed my house for a little less than the price I really wanted to sell it for, in the hope of getting multiple offers. However inspite of the hot housing market, I got only a single offer at exactly my list price. My agent told me that since it was a full priced offer, I was obliged to sell it. I went through with the sale only to later find out that I could have made a counter offer asking the buyer for an extra $$$$. My real estate agent misled me and did not explain the possibilities. I was fooled out of my house and did not get a fair price. Every other sale in my neighborhood was above the asking price by at least $5000.
don't list them right away, trying to keep the sale in house, earning
themselves a double commission. If the broker did that, you not only
could go after him, but you should.
If it was actually in MLS, and the buyer made an offer not only for
the full price asked but for all the other terms you asked for without
contingencies, you will probably not be able to get much, if anything,
from the broker.
Probably not if that's the only fact there is. You might be able toCan I take action against my agent saying that he misled me into selling my house at just the asking price?
get him for malpractice, though, for listing it either too high or too
low. You'd have to talk to another broker about that. But my guess
is you won't get too far on this basis.
