Well, we decided we need to buy a house and... we found one that we liked. We met the agent representing the seller and he said that since we didn't have an agent already, he could represent us, too (he said he has the appropriate licence to do so). We did sign the contract with him to represent us, too.
We loved the house and we applied for the mortgage. The bank's reaction has been positive so far even though we didn't get the pre-approval, yet. Anyway, we called him (the agent) yesterday and asked him to help us see the house one more time before making a final decision about it. At 8:30am, he said that he has to check his schedule for Sunday and let us know if he would be able to make it. Well, at 3:30pm his wife (a real estate agent - they are working together) called me and said: "I will be there on Sunday from 2 to 4, we'll have an open house! You can come any time you would like to". He'd also sent an e-mail saying that he gave her all the info about us so she would know why we would be there. After this discussion, I went to see if there was any "open house" sign in the area... but there was none. There is no open house advertising regarding this house on trulia or prudential's (they are prudential's agents) website. So, there was nothing planned before we asked to see the house one more time.
Now... I wonder... is this ok? I mean, we don't have any pre-contract signed yet, or negotiations started but they are organizing an open house just because the buyer is serious about buying the property??? I understand that he has to be fair in this transaction... to be fair with both seller and buyer. I feel like we need to change the agent. Am I exaggerating?
