soil test...fertilized

Okay..so the story goes I overseeded/fertalized last fall and this spring the grass was lush and green. I wanted to put some spring fertalizer down so I did a soil test. Acid 6.0, Nitrogen Low, Posphorus high, Potash Low. So I bought a Lesco Fertalizer (non-weed control) 18-0-12. I spread it as directed. Now my lawn is looking like it is fertalizer burnt. I dont get it? I watered before I put the fertalizer down and did my normal morning zone watering?

I am in the process of selling my house and now my yard doesn't look very good. What can I do now?

Any thoughts or suggestions is greatly welcome!

You watered immediately before applying the fertilizer, the day before, or when exactly?
How much did you water after the application and when?

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. If you wouldn't put your name on it, it ain't done right!
