The only person I see having done anything wrong in your situation is the seller of your new house. I’m not a realtor and don’t trust most of them. But, you have NO reason to be blaming the realtor in this case as he/she did nothing wrong. If you want to blame or go after someone legally it should be the seller who didn’t follow through with thier part of the bargin.
You might want to find out the reason why your seller decided to raise the price all of a sudden. Your realtor had no business telling the seller of your situation and you might want to tell him/her that if you think that’s the case. Then again maybe the seller just got scared and needed a way to back out. Talk to a lawyer if it means that much to you.
