Ruth -- FSBO stands for "For Sale By Owner". It sounds as if you're trying to sell the home yourself, with only an attorney, and no Realtor. Is that correct?? That's usually where the problem lies. Too bad you didn't have an agent working for you to make sure the lender could close a loan on time. (and who would have encouraged backup offers and NOT taken it off the market!)

There are any number of reasons why they haven't been given a "clear to close". Impossible for anyone here to tell you what's going on. Your attorney should be in touch with the lender to get details on why it's taking so long.

Many answers listed here and with good advice. The most important aspect of whether or not you choose a particular real estate firm is what services is this agency going to provide for you and how will they market your home. There are many agencies to choose from and we all provide basically the same service and how high or low of a commission charged is not necessarily an indication of how well this agency will perform. You should contact several different agencies to discuss with them what services they will provide and at what commission rate. When you list your home with a broker, not only is the overall commission negotiable, but how the commission is split with cooperating brokers is also determined when a listing agreement is prepared. Be sure you feel comfortable with the agent and agency you choose. They are working for you and you should expect them to adequately represent your best interests to ensure that your home is listed at an appropriate price and effectively marketed. Good luck. ... more

The #1 reason a home doesn't sell is price.Take a look at your listing price. Are similar homes priced lower? Selling prices may have changed since your first comparative market analysis. Chances are good that you've overpriced it. If you do lower your asking price, consider a figure slightly below those of other comparable homes if you are interested in a quick sale. Condition may be the problem. Is the house clean? Are there pet odors? stains? Are the appliances clean? Is the bathroom spotless? Is the home cluttered? How about the kitchen? Any signs of water damage can be a huge turn-off to potential buyers. Can you see a water spot on the ceiling? The leak might have been fixed 15 years ago, but if the evidence is still there, buyers will assume there's still a problem. Have you hired a full time sales agent? A good agent will help you set a fair and competitive selling price for your home that will increase your odds of a quick sale. ... more

My suggestion to any Seller is to interview with a few FULL TIME - FULL SERVICE Licensed Real Estate Sales people and with the fact that all commissions are negotiatable, you and that chosen agent should be able to come to a fair fee,

Good Luck to you!
