The voice of business in Canberra

One moment it was for sale… then *poof*

By angeb 4 September 2011 25

I had been to every open house in the four weeks. I was first to arrive and last to leave. It truely was the most amazing home. The agent said it was all done by a designer… ohhh that kitchen, the bathrooms, the inlcusions were astonishing.

I threw in a silly offer early to test the waters… no bite. Fair enough. the owners knew that someone would give what they wanted.

At showing 3, I noticed another couple who had been present at earlier open houses – damn, she loved it as much as me.

Following the last showing I was phoned by the agent and advised an acceptable offer had been made… I steeled myself (god bless you grandma) and added another 10K… I would need to wait…

The next day, my dream home disappeared from allhomes! gone *poof*

Its not back and the sign has been pulled, but its still on the property against a wall? I cant get a straight answer from the agent… very frustrating.

Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing?

Seriously, keep yourself away from ebay and auctions – you’ll be here all week whinging about people who bid more than you did winning the item and then not discussing your loss with you.

totally agree.

I find the reference to homosexuality in the title offensive.

If Ralph Lauren cannot have “Polo” then you cannot have “Poof”, it’s a sound effect anyway.

Did you say ‘poof’ to the real estate agent? Maybe thats why you couldnt get a straight answer?

*The Original Post Is Malicious*

For the record, I am one of the parties purchasing the property and I am the one who made the higher offer and it had nothing to do with my grandmother. I would also like to add that the agent in question has done nothing wrong. By law, the agent is required to take all bids to the owners up until contracts are exchanged.

Whilst I can only speak for myself, I have been appropriately informed as to why the property was removed from all homes by the agent and the agent has been nothing less than professional! I would bet money the other party and owners would say the same.

Angeb, you very small person to compromise the reputation of the agent who has done nothing to you and nothing wrong. If you wanted a dig at me, then I dare you to grow some b*lls and do it in person. Yes, that’s right – I used my real name – are you a big enough person to do the same? I doubt it and it doesn’t really matter, as smart as you think you are – it wasn’t hard to work out who you are. If you ever wonder why the sun never shines on you – please reflect on moments like this – you are a small and petty individual. I feel sorry for you.

Exclamation marks: needs moar!!!
