The answer to your question will depend on what your executed contract states. Ask your Real Estate Agent or review your contract with the Seller to know what contingencies were negotiated into the contract and what the deadlines are/were. ... more

SELLER BEWARE Realtor agents are like lawyers if the mouth is moving you can count on it is what is in their interest and NOT yours

i witnessed a sale right in my own area that was illegal as it comes. a seller was selling their home with a local realtor. the realtor did nothing to advertise the home and the seller said that they were taking the home off the market. the broker called saying they have a buyer but the home is only worth 98,000. the sell decided to trust the broker and they sold the home. 7 days later in to a 30 day close the broker called and said the money was in his hand (untrue the check goes to the title company) and if they could get out now they can have the check. they move out on Thursday of that week the following Monday a moving truck pulls up and unloads the new owners stuff. i went to meet the new owner and ask how much they paid for the home ( i later verified it in public records as well) they told me 145,000 YEA 145K in 48 hours NOW that is a progressive real estate market a 47,000 value increase in a few days. and we say agents are the way to go. RIGHT if you want to be ripped off. just watch a few TV shows of the realtors in California where they lie to both parties to gain money for themselves. ... more

How to Sell Your Home

1. Prepare your home for sale
2. Find the Market Value for your Home by researching comparable sales, which have similar upgrades or improvements as yours, to get a more accurate valuation for your house
3. Analyze the current market condition of your area to determine a pricing strategy based on your needs.
4. Utilize an aggressive marketing strategy to expose your listing to as many prospective buyers locally, nationally and internationally
5. Negotiate the terms of a contract with Buyer's that are willing, able and capable of purchasing.
6. Ensure all mandatory disclosures are provided and documented.
7. Close escrow on the sale
8. Receive your proceeds from the sale

I recommend utilizing a good Realtor to Navigate you through the steps.

Eceart answered:
I have the same issue. My realator was suppose to be my sellers agent. Then she decided to bring her buyers to buy my house and turned into the transaction broker for the deal. Little did I know that she would side with the buyers the whole transaction and treat me like the dirt on her shoes. She has called me ungrateful, said I absolutly will not do anything to help this sale and that I just don't seem to want to do anything for her buyers, and speaks to me with a condesending rude tone all the time. She emails me and expects and answer within an hour, if I don't answer her immediatly she leaves a nasty voicemail on my answering machine. I sold my home for $30,000 under market value, and will be paying $5,000 of the buyers closing costs. She still treats me like dirt. I am so happy to be done with her tomorrow and will never deal with her again. She's been nothing but horrible. All I can do is breath and be very happy I am almost done with her and her horrible ways. I will never allow a broker to just be my transaction broker again. Learned my lesson. I will also never do business with her or the company that represents her. Can't wait to be done with tomorrow. ... more
