i just got a call from the agent. my offer is not being accepted. in fact he isn't even going to pass it to the vendors (which i think is illegal as i'm rather certain that he, by law has to pass all offers to the vendors).
oh well. looks like i am not going to sydney this arvo to buy a house afterall.
he said "I don't have to present offers if they're below a specific price set by the vendor"
You'r offer is the asking price! what's his problem?
I should add, that while i was speaking to the agent on the phone, i found him to be very hard to understand. in fact, I had no idea what he was saying in some sentences.
That must be a real put off for some people using him as an agent. His oral communication skills, and his accent, were very difficult to understand.
He may be doing very well in his social demographic though.
