Kind regards,

Is a mold-inspection with elevated (15x outdoor level) myxomycetes a deal-breaker? Myxomycetes is a wood decay indicator.
Could you show the results of your inspection to the current owners? If they lower their price by the $3K it costs for mold remediation, it still might be worth staying in the contract. ... more

Can I get my listing to show up even though it is pending show? We have an offer but wish to have the property shown for potential back up offers.
In most cases as long as it is showing any type of pending, it is removed from active.

Fred Herman answered:
If I offer asking price of a home in NY State is the seller obliged to accept offer? Or can they wait for other offer from another potential buyer?
it's the seller's home. they can sell to whomever, whenever the want. also, sometimes it's the terms that are just as important or even more important to the seller than the price.

What are the risks to me signing the inspection report for a home I am about to make an offer?
The bottom line is that signing the inspection report is merely acknowledging the receipt of the information. That's it.
