The agent told me this is a great deal and she pulled comps on three homes in my neighborhood that sold. However, when I purchased this house three years ago there were many houses being built at the same time and we had to pull comps from homes in other locations due to the customized floor plan we did. It is not just 4 bed 41/2 bath it has two master suites, fenced in cleared yard, only two years old, other houses are just base models. How do I question her listing price without being offensive? Now when I pull the listing of homes with 4+ beds, 4+ bath in my zip code I get three listings one for 365K, 335K, and mine for 285K but buyer is asking 260K. None of the other homes are in my neighborhood but within the zip code under MLS. Doesn't that seem weird....
My agent is coming over to discuss this deal and is pressuring me to sign the contract. What is a good stall tactic to reject this offer without being suspecious. I am behind on mortgage but the lender said I am far from foreclosure I just needed to move it from loan modification. I am literally on Welfare. I can show that for 8 months I did not work.... I have three interviews next week.
