That depends on how the contract is written. You would need to hire an attorney and you shouldn't play around with taxes.

Use to fully understand + analyze all real costs of homeownership, including purchase price, down payment options, closing costs (title insurance, bank fees, inspection/appraisal, legal), mortgage financing- interest rate, term, points, pre approval requirements, RE Taxes, HO Insurance, utilities/maintenance/condo fees, selling costs (broker commission, capital gains tax, state transfer taxes). is educational, in-depth, easy-to-understand.

Funny from July 2011 to Jan 2012 interest rates have basically stayed low & this is the typical response from a realtor. Do your own research don't rely soley on the opinion of a realtor as some of them are more worried about what they can get from your home or sale then abiding by the realtor code of ethics(NAR). If you choose to rely on a Realtor,please do so with caution & try to find a family or friend who recently sold/bought a home, if they had a pleasant experience ask for their realtor's name & number.
READ all wording in listings,contracts etc. If you don't agree or like something change it ASAP, don't fall for don't worry it'll be ok, ALWAYS get things in writing, no matter how small it may be. Never rely on a realtor to look out for your best interest. Once they think you have time & money invested involving sale of home things change, example: Something listed as including in the home now all of a sudden turns to be a negotiation & realtor states it was an error, costing thousands of dollars in the end that you had no intention spending,in fact if truth was known would have never given home a second look. You can go into a Real Estate place & ask for a list of homes that recently sold (COMP) then compare desirable features & whats offered with home. If they know you're looking to sell your home, They'll offer to come look at home & tell you what THEY think your home would sell for on the current market. DON'T be pressured into signing any contract UNTIL you're absolutely comfortable. They may give you a price to list your home, in the end YOU have the final say... whether right or wrong it's always better go a little higher, you can always go down not up, dont sell your home short. I love when they say " you may take a hit on the sale of your home but in the long run interest rates are low so it really balances out in the end". IF YOU'RE not comfortable with numbers don't do it!!!
