Asked by Kardin, crystal city, va Sat May 10, 2008

in Kingstowne. After just a day of negotiations we agreed upon a price with a contigency that the seller would have extra time to get into the house that she wanted. As she explained to my father and I when we saw the place...she had her eye on a few and just needed to decide on one. She NEVER, NEVER, intimated that she might not move. 2 days ago I get the news that she didnt get the price she wanted on the ONE house so is pulling out. of our deal. I simply dont understand how she could do this. IF i backed out she would get my emd, but I get nothing. NO money for time off from work, travel or accomodations for my father??? And she also told her agent to tell me that she hoped I could find a place close, so we could be neighbors!!! the nerve. Could someone explain how this could happen and if i have any recourse? I am also concerned she pulled ack because she wants to reliest and get more money- can she do that??? thanks for any advice
