The Realtor makes an offer, Chapter 4: How will this end?

We did not get the Toluca Lake townhouse that we made the offer on.

We offered full price.  So did the listing agent's clients.

Our terms were good.  So were the listing agent's clients.

We were going to put 20% down.  The listing agent's clients were putting more down.  According to the listing agent, that's what persuaded her seller to take their offer and not ours.  Of course, the listing agent will get the full 6% commission, but I'm sure that had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with who the listing agent's seller picked.

Will we continue to look? Maybe.  Maybe not.  Right now, we're busy licking our wounds.

    Sounds like there was some favoritism being applied here. However, perhaps it's a sign; a nice big kitchen MUST be indigenous to the floorplan!!
