You can certainly decide not to sell your home; however, be aware that if a Realtor has brought you a ready and willing buyer, and an offer you agreed to, you may be liable for a commission. You need to speak with a Real Estate Attorney to discuss your legal ramifications.

I would talk to a real estate attorney about this but James sounds about right to me.

Hi Morales,

I would advise you speak with a real estate attorney on this matter. You should be able to cancel the contract but you will want to know the potential legal ramifications that come along with that.

Good Luck,

It depends. Talk to your Realtor. However, you may still owe commissions and you will have to deal with the buyer. The buyer can sue you for specific performance, which means they can "make" you sell it to them. Maybe you should get an attorney.

Hi Morales, a contract is a legally binding document. You want to read through it carefully and consult an attorney to see what options, if any, you have. Please also keep in mind that the buyer has already invested emotionally and, depending on what stage of the contract you are in, financially. Best of luck.
