Yes, I do. And I check to see if the listing agent sold the property him or herself.

I have done this a couple of times, especially if my buyer's offer was a very strong one and in part because I suspected that the listing agent may have had a buyer of their own put an offer in.  This is one of the reasons why I miss the days when the norm was to have the (prospective) selling agent present the offer themselves (with the listing agent present) rather than email or fax it to the L.A. and hope that it gets presented the way one would want.  Few listing agents are willing to give up that control now.

No, because the amount might not have had anything to do with why offer was rejected. In VA, sellers do not have to disclose any reason why they rejected an offer. the only reason to check would be if your buyer is still looking in that area, and you need to use that sale as a comp.

I do so ONLY to track the accuracy of the CIS SCORE. I do this for EVERY house I visit.

Who, why or how it sold after my buyers offer was rejected is of no concern to me.

I've seen many well qualified buyers offer kicked to the curb because they presented a dirt-ball offer. 

I've seen many well qualified buyers respectable offer kicked to the curb because the buyer did not follow the clues the seller offered.

I've seen well qualified buyer with respectable offers kicked to the curb because of the lender they choose.

None of which is of concern to me after the event. I only want to know if my valuations are bulls-eye accurate. By being so equipped, I take the appraisal issue off the table FIRST, eliminating fretting over 'Will it appraise?" I already know and have the solution in play.

Ronald Gombach In the end it's the seller's decision to take what they think is the best offer. I do sometimes look out of curiosity.

I have had a few  where my offer was rejected and the home later sold for less than I offered, and the agent double ended the deal.

Of course she never responded to my emails after those little deals were done.

Not necessarily.  By time the transaction in question has closed, hopefully my buyer has made a more successful offer on another property.

This is the kind of follow up that should not be necessary, especially if we suspect that the listing agent was trying to get her own buyer in.

Yes, it help to understand the current demand in that area.  In certain parts of my trading area, the market is extremely tight with lots of multiple offers on each property.

Do, no, have I, yes.  There is nothing positive that can be accomplished from looking back.  If a lower offer is accepted it could be terms or a corrupt agent.  Most likely it was a better offer.  Either way, picking fights and making enemies is time consuming and takes us off of our game.  Move on!
