This may differ from state to state. In North Carolina I believe in most cases the sellers could file insmall claims court. Our contract in North Carolina is pretty clear about what happens the buyers or sellers do not follow through with their contractual obligations. ... more

did u even counter the offer??? we had a total of 3 low ball offers on our home. the first 2 were just "throwing mud to see if it would stick" - we countered $1000 under list and never heard a thing back. 3rd offer was also low but these people wanted the house and were "testing the water" (we still were not happy about another low ball offer) -we countered a couple thousand off list and they came up to our price. we do not have a large mortgage (not that that should matter) but houses in our area have already lost 14% in the last 4 years and are selling now for 7% under list. we manage to get 3.75% under list and feel that we have a contract that is fair market value considering the housing market. at this point it is entirely up to u, counter their offer, accept it or wait. we never budged off our list price as we were a bit low for our area (like $2000 under), house is in wonderful condition and is not a foreclosure or short sale. price was never a issue in the 25+ showings we had.
all agents want to make money, we all do. i dont know if he has a hidden agenda, u should ask him to compile solds and contracts in ur area for the last 6 months and then decide if the price is right. you need to do ur homework, no one is looking out for u, no one... u have to do ur part to be able to sleep at nite.
good luck

If the buyer is getting a mortgage, you will be asked to sign a form that states this is the true price of the home. You will also sign the HUD and state tax forms where you will have to sign swearing this is teh true price of teh home. If you accept money not discloses, it is against the law. There are no if's, and's or but's about it. You do not need to do anything against the law tio sell your home. Your agent should be guiding you through this process, if you are selling on your own, you need an attorney... ... more

Luchaprov, f you are clear that setting up a Lease-to-Purchase option with this potential customer will not work, the best thing to do is simply state the truth. It can be phrased as, "I am really sorry. I would love to have you buy my home and hope that you are able to do so. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to offer a lease on my home and hope you will understand." ... more

Could be that they are overpriced for today's market, it's possible HOA fees may be considered too high by some, depending on the complex, location, etc. -- today buyers have a multitude of choices and are shopping for great deals. ... more

I'm not even a realtor and I can answer this question. Go to and click on the state of New Hampshire. On the left side is a link for "Sold Listings". Click on that and choose "Dover, NH" from the drop-down list... enter in whatever details you want and click "Submit". Voila... you will see homes that sold and the price they sold for. Good luck. ... more
