Thanks, Lyn Sims
More often than not, when a contract gets to this stage of the process, it can be difficult for the second buyer to kick out the current contract-holder. But...the answer is always no unless you ask. So, if you would like to know what the next steps are, I would be happy to consult with you. Just give me a telephone call and there is never any obligation for information.
If you want, I can send you the homes that are available on a lease/purchase or rent w/ option(2 different things) or discuss financing plans that you may be able to use to buy sooner than you think.
I have been a Schaumburg realtor for 26 years and will be happy to meet with you over hot chocolate and discuss homes and any questions together.
