In most cases, the sale price is renegotiated. Sometimes the bank will review other comparables and adjust their decision. Occasionally, another appraiser is brought into the picture. In any case, it's a difficult situation.

the appraised value would need to include the seller concession you indicated. if the appraisal comes in lower than contract, either buyer agrees to come come out of pocket for the difference(bank will only lend on appraised value) OR you would negotiate your agreed upon sales price(reduce your sale price)

I hope you don't have that problem. it could play out in different ways, including killing your deal.

If you are committed, you should start packing:
You should have already packed about half; stuff you don't use every day. Along with half the furniture and all the personal items; jewelry, pictures, nic-nacs, etc.
I don't know where your market is, but surely it is worth $165!
Good luck and may God bless

I won't hold you to it :) but thanks for easing my mind a bit. I guess I better get off my ipad and get packing.

Yes they both did...my original realtor had it up for 175900 I took it off with her after 3 months of Hardly any action and put it up with another realtor for 165900. We have an agreement on the house but I am worried about the appraisal coming in low and losing the agreement. The agreement is full price with 3% seller assist...so does it have to appraise for the 165900 or 164900-3%? We have settlement July 31st and I don't know if I should start packing or wait it out yet.

Then you have it priced too high:
Did you have your Realtor do a CMA before you decided on a LIST price?
