Not enough information to provide a complete answer. However, neither party to a real estate contract can unilaterally cancel without the legal ability to do so spelled out in the document. So much depends on the circumstances but you may wish to speak with a qualified real estate attorney. ... more

Your agent needs to change the status of the listing to withdrawn or expired. Then you will have to re-enter it as active

YES: some of the best reason for cancelling a listing contract if you are dissatisfied:
1) If you signed a listing agreement and they haven't given you a copy of what you signed, the agreement is considered null & void. If they insist of suing you, tell them you will see them at Real Estate Council (in case of Ontario province, it is the RECO (Real Estate Council of Ontario).
2) You can tell them you no longer wish to continue and you got a refinancing for mortgage.
3) Find a loophole in the contract, like signatures, dates, additional conditions. Just slight mistake will give you a hand in voiding it.
4) if you had a copy of the agreement, send it to a real estate lawyer, they know what to do.

I am the seller and the deal is asking me to bring $9,000.00 to closing. I didn't sign all the papers in the contract. Does this make the contract invalid? I have printed the pages I didn't sign.

Help please answere.

We wish you the very best luck with the sale of your home. The real estate market in Jupiter has been a little tricky so pricing and marketing will need to be spot on to get your best return. We publish weekly articles that you can find at the link below. If you are selling a single family home prices have finally stopped falling but condo prices have yet to turn the corner. Inventory is rising but still well below year ago levels and this season should see demand rising. Pending home sales are down almost 40% since May.

Over 90% of all buyers will shop on-line before contacting a Realtor and selling by yourself will limit the sites you will have access to post. Make sure you have professional high resolution photos and provide a well written description as attracting the buyers attention so they want to make the call is critical. We feel that less that 5% of all listings give the seller what we consider proper marketing exposure. Make sure you understand the pitfalls of writing a contract to watch out for your best interests and handling objections during the inspection period. Always get at least 3 proposals from closing agents as this can save you hundreds of dollars.

Our passion remains to raise the bar on quality and value for anyone needing real estate service throughout Palm Beach and Martin County and if you need help or advice with anything during the process please feel free to reach out to us.

Hi June,
Only specific sites allow sellers to list their home for sale without a Broker involved. FSBO would be the most recognized. If you get to a point your just not getting any serious buyers. Give me a call Im happy to go over some other options with you.

Chad Barrett Penner Esq answered:
Unfortunately, you have got yourself in a pickle. Advice from a licensed real estate attorney is the best course of action. Real property is unique. There in lies the problem with being able to just change your mind while under contract. Normally, you can breach a contract and just pay the damages suffered by the other party or what was already agreed upon in the contract. Although you are under contract and that contract closing date has expired, the decisions of many court cases normally favors a fulfillment of the contract. From what I remember, the courts use the terminology "reasonable time to close" in these situations. Do to real property being unique, courts may favor what another person called specific performance. In a nutshell, the courts may force you to sell your property to the buyer if the buyer is able to pay you for it under the terms you originally agreed upon within a reasonable time frame of the original agreed upon closing date. What that time frame is is up to a judge to decide. Contact a lawyer. They are not always as expensive as some may think, and they are usually worth the cost. ... more

Tom Priester answered:

It is hard to say without knowing what the contract you signed stated. If you signed a standard Florida As-Is Contract, which is used on the vast majority of purchases here in Jupiter, and you are still within the inspection period and no additional terms were added you should be able to cancel the contract without recourse. These contracts are truly nothing more than a free option on the property during the inspection period.

If you have no contingencies left your earnest money deposit is at risk but sometimes walking away from those funds can be a wise decision depending on your circumstances. You should sit down with the broker who is representing you and go over the details of your particular contract.

J answered:
Good opinions below! I will add that to ensure correct interpretation of the contracts, please make a quick phone call to your local real estate attorney. The contracts, at least in my neck of the woods, are in part created and approved via the bar association. For questions such as this I inquire with the NC Real Estate Commission's legal department or an appropriate attorney. Good luck to you and thanks for the question. ... more
