So first off I have worked with about 10 real estate agents over the past year or so. I find most of them are quite horrible. You explain what you want and they either don't call you back or show you stuff that they want to sell. For example, we were looking to relocate to another part of Orlando with a larger home, and one agent "sent us" to homes in our development that were 10% bigger then our current home.
The agents are so terrible I am about ready to go get my real estate license just so I don't have to deal with these idiots.
So we signed an agreement with a buyer's agent that was only half way terrible. We found something we kind of liked and this buyer's agent showed us the house. A bit distressed, but great location and good bones. The listing price was a bit over 400K, my valuation came in around 325K. The buyers agent insisted that it would be a waste of their time to put in a bid of less then 375K. So we ended up passing, and ended up "firing" the buyers agent.
About two months later the property has been lowered to 323K, while the market has softened a bit, this put this into a home with nice profit potential. This was pointed out by a different agent who is a wife of a friend.
Can I use this second agent to purchase the home? Keep in mind that the first buyer's agent showed us the place.
