In NY it is illegal to be a freelancing agent (including NYC). ALL real estate agents who are licensed need to sign a contract with a brokerage and the broker needs to keep their license while they are under their supervision. Brokers are legally responsible for their agent's actions.

Therefore, tell this freelancing agent that they are performing their business illegally and you will be using a different agent - one who has a contract with a broker. You can also check the New York State Licensing division website to research the agent's name, license number and brokerage they work for.

I've placed three offers like this. All included an escalation clause. The clause allowed the sellers agent to disclose my offer, and use it in the calculation for final purchase price.

My next offer will be a fair price and I will insist that my offer not be used in any type of bidding war. I'm driving up prices in a seller's market by attempting to use these escalation clauses. I no longer want to know who the competition is or how much they are willing to pay. ... more

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

You can put 3% down and you can even roll closing cost in using a sellers concession.

Your payment will depend on the purchase price of the home, the taxes and insurance cost.

I mostly handle NY and can lend nationwide.

If you would like help with this you are welcome to contact me for a mortgage pre approval.
