Tina, My sister is an agent in that area and I could your friend in touch with her. However, with any sale, if it is priced right, it will sell in any market. Please contact me if your friend could use my sister's services.

Listing/buyers/ title company/ loan officer should be working out these details on your behalf. I would recommend to be flexible than losing an opportunity on selling a home.

Yeah Tony,not lookin good,That buyers agent,should of given you a approval letter?and the lender contact info should be on there.You must not have a REALTOR,representing you,but you can call and ask,you have lost a 3month window? with other buyers that are now moved on.Good luck.
You can only demand that which your attorney has put into your contract.
This is a very good example of why sellers should only get into contract with buyers who are a) putting down a minimum of 20%, b) have a LENDER's pre-approval with only two contingencies, a contract and an appraisal. This indicates they have gone through the full application processes and all of their documents have been verified and fit a mortgage program.
The oil company can be requested to measure the tank (they can do this from the outside) on the day of or before closing and they can fax the certificate to your attorney.
It does not make sense for a walk-through until you have moved out of the house. They will have to do one even if you have not moved everything out, but escrow will be held until a final walk-through is done and a release signed.
Make your moving arrangements; the movers are used to closings being delayed or cancelled for various reasons and if the closing does not happen, you will not have moved unless you so desire. check your contract to see if your attorney has given you an additional 5 days to remain in the house.
Your bank can provide you with a payoff number as late as when you are sitting at the closing table if need be. Do not stress this.
Your attorney will take care of tax adjustments.
It seems as if there is a lot to do, but just take one thing at a time. It is all attainable, but you need to stop looking at the big picture and start taking each task one-by-one.
If your contract demands a commitment by a certain date (or amount of days) and that time has passed, you have every right to have your attorney send a time is of the essence letter and you can ultimately severe your relationship with the buyers and start over. Is that really what you want to do?... more
No. It isn't their agent's responsibility and it is an irrelevant point. Why would you try to make this the agent's fault? Just easy to do and the most popular person to bash on this forum? I realize you're disappointed the sale did not go through and would like to blame someone, but it is happening all the time, all over the place today. Blame the market and they buyer. So you have plenty of company. we recently had a buyer, on the morning of the closing, just walk away from the sale. Did they lose their deposit? Some of it. Not all.... more
