Kathy Burgre…, Home Owner in Westchester, NY

Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor & NYC area resident, this is tricky. The issue is whether or not you gave your agent all the buyers names who visited your home before you signed the listing contract. I'm guessing you never did. Ooops. Unless your agent has all the buyers names who visited your home, it will be tough to prove that this particular buyer saw your home before you signed the listing contract. This means your agent will demand you pay a commission even though this buyer saw your home before.

Here is what you need to do. 1) Tell your agent the names of some buyers who visited your home before and make sure it's added into the listing contract. Your agent may balk and claim "foul". Real estate agents refuse to take listings if they know there are buyers who may come back and the seller can sell the house without the agent earning a commission.
2) Ask the buyer if they can wait a few months to close. In the meantime, contact the Broker in Charge or Office Manager and ask to cancel / withdraw the listing. The Broker or Office Manager needs to approve it and sign off. Your agent does not make the final decision on this. There is probably a clause in your contract that states you cannot sell your home for X number of months after the contract has ended. This is to protect the brokerage that you (the seller) will not sell your home behind their backs and prevent them earning a commission. This only works if your buyer can hold off for a few months.
3. If the above doesn't work, then you're stuck selling your home to this buyer and paying your agent a commission.

You might try looking into Serenade at Palmer Ranch, Pinestone and Plaza de Flores.

Bella Villino is experiencing issues with stucco and leaking around windows. Owners are having to pay special assessments for repairs and there have been some reports of mold issues. Vintage Grand has also been reported to have issues with the stucco over frame construction.

Pinestone and Plaza de Flores were built as condominium communities, Serenade started out as an apartment complex that was later converted to condos. Vintage Grand and Bella Villino were also apartments converted to condos. The conversions generally lead to more noise issues as not as much soundproofing was used in construction.

Palmer Ranch is very popular with both buyers and renters, but there are other options close to Palmer Ranch that might provide a little more for your money by not being within Palmer Ranch.

If the property is listed through a real estate agent, then no, you should contact the listing agent to see the home. The sellers obviously do not want to deal directly with buyers -- otherwise they would have done a FSBO (for sale by owner). ... more
