Karen Peyton answered:
This is a complicated question because it depends on whether or not the Seller has taken "action" in their refusal to sell. Without "action" and 10 days left before close of escrow, no breach of contract has occurred (according to what you have written) and they can easily comply with the terms and conditions of the contract to avoid a breach.

Of course your agent is the best person to comment on the events of your transaction and what your recourse as the Buyer may be. Contact them for the exact answer to your question as it relates to your unique and individual circumstance.

Good luck!

Karen Peyton answered:
I agree with Kathy and will add an additional point...It seems you would likely want your home to appear in Arizona Multiple Listing Service thereby making it available for sale to hundreds if not thousands of agents searching for properties for their clients. Agents cannot advertise a property in MLS without an offer of cooperating compensation - "cooperating" to mean I will give you a portion of the commission I have negotiated with the Seller to bring a ready, willing, and able Buyer.

If you have further questions or would like additional information...Contact me.

The problem I've run in to especially in small towns are from the agents themselves. They don't know who they are working for. One minute they are for the buyer then the next minute they are for the seller. This gives me mixed feelings about my realstate agents. I feel they are crooks if it pads their pocket more. If I'm purchasing a 227k home presented as near perfect that's what I expect, something I should not have to worry about. Upon inspection I noticed a sulphur smell and I presented my concerns to my agent. I found tge house most suitable for my family so I left my concern with my trusty agent (not) and had to drive back to atlanta. My agent called and told me the house was fine and a water leak was repaired. We moved into our new home days before Christmas and it was cold, eet, and snowing. On a warmer day I noticed the smell was back and even stronger. Come to find out the house never had a water leak. The septic system was bad and my lateral lines were clogged and sewage bubbled up to the surface. My neighbor said the house had always had septic issues but no one wanted to repair it because the cost exceeded 20 thousand dollars. The city told me I had to repair the damage, dig up the entire septic, and have it replaced by a system up to code. I got the shaft! what does one do under these conditions? ... more

I have lived in the south over 60 years, you learn to know where the snakes are and stay out
of their area. Sure one might come in your yard but leave him alone and he will keep moving
they don't like to run into us either. Good look, FL is great.

Castnet16 answered:
Before you buy a new solar system, make sure you will be there at your house a few years. Not worth paying off a $17,000 system if you move in two years, so it would be better to lease if there is a good probability you will leave within 5 years.

Also, try to get the panels facing south. If a solar system won't look good in the neighborhood, even facing south might not be good and may harm the resale value.

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

I don't know the specifics of their loan but there is a way to raise the rate slightly and give them a lender credit that they can use towards closing costs.

Also depending on what the home appraised for there may be a way to raise the sales price and give the buyers a sellers concession.

Like I said I don't know all the details but I can see if I can help with financing and structuring this to work if I had all the details.

You are welcome to get in touch with me if you have any questions or the buyers would like help with this.

You can always ask, but typically "no".

Inspections & appraisal are part of your due diligence in attempting to purchase a property... and that's the buyer's expense.
