WASHINGTON — In the real estate brokerage field they're often known as "setups" or "pinball" homes, and this spring's improving conditions in some markets could be stimulating more of them. A setup or pinball property is a house listed with an unrealistically high asking price that pulls in lots of visits by agents and shoppers, but no offers. The problem is this: Real estate agents, including even the listing agent, are using the overpriced house as a negative example to sell similar homes in the area that carry lower asking prices.

QUESTION: What recourse do we, as prospective home buyers, have if the listing agent of a home we want to buy refuses to promptly present our offer to the seller? Our buyer's agent has, for more than a week, tried to present our offer. But the listing agent comes up with excuses why he hasn't contacted the seller to present our offer. We like the house and believe we have made a fair purchase offer along with our good-faith deposit.
