You're obligated to the terms of your contract regardless of what your realtor told you. If you want to extend the closing date, both your lender and your buyer would need to approve it.
If your realtor didn't get an extended closing date approved by all parties (and the lender) and was simply shooting from the hip, he/she has done you a tremendous disservice. Regardless, you must follow the terms of your contract as it is currently written or face the possibility of breaching the terms.
but the last part i understand. if you are selling your home and you have an approved sale by your bank(s) - you absolutely should move to close. FIND A PLACE to live - quick. and be done with it.
a business friend of mine has a great place in Huntington. NO COMMISSION for real estate - he's a friend of mine and his place is VERY nice.
