Well I've had a little chat with my Realtors (the hubby and wife and if you'll recall I was ready to swing at the hubby when I purchased because he was frustrating to me). I'm closing on my house is Wed. :) and I asked them to find out what happened to the high end tap that was in the kitchen when I purchase but wasn't there the day I went to measure.
As it turns out the tap belonged to the tenant (a plumber) so he removed it. The seller's realtor said she told most people but apparently forgot to mention it to me. My realtor (hubby) thinks I should just let it go as he feels the other realtor did us some favours (I'm not convinced what they were other than she apparently dropped her commission as she was wanting to not have to deal with the sellers anymore...so I see that as her option and have no sense of what that meant to me when it came to price). I also think hubby realtor doesn't like conflict where I think all I need to do is call the lawyer, say the tap is different and have them knock $100 or so off the money handed over.
Realtor hubby seems to think that as long as there is a reasonably good tap there that's okay and it's not like it's a big appliance. I am pretty much feeling 'so what?'. I can use that money as much as anyone and why should I pay? The price difference in the taps is at least $100 if not more. His wife has left it at lets see what else is changed and I'm fine with that but this guy is really making me wonder what he's thinking.
What do you think? Am I being unreasonable and should I let it go? It's not a lot of money, but in the scheme of things for me to replace that tap (with plumber) would cost me. I am also quite sensitive to this after having a lot of stuff disappear out of my first house I bought and being hassled to death by the buyers of house I sold a couple of years ago (they thought I left trash when in fact it was extra paint and flooring for the house and were complete pains about it all).
