We used to have several houses posted with Postlets, but they are no longer operational. I want to link my former postings on Postlets, which I think are still on Trulia to our website.…

Crooksie in DE,
You need to know the market value of your real estate first.
Next you need to know your 'net' position resulting from the sale.
Knowing this, the optons available to you, for selling your home can be discussed.
Decison #1 is are you going to SELL are intend to test and play around a bit.
You need to be clear on your timeline for completing the sale.
If the property MUST be sold in 30 days, that is possbile, but you need to be committed.
If time is a luxury you have, there are more options available.

Now that you have an idea regarding the process, and you are serious about selling the house, pick up the phone and call a Wilmington REALTOR. If you are not serious you will indicate so by using that 'contact' link below the images.

Best of success in selling your Wilmington house.

It sounds that communication was just terrible between you two.
What a terrible buying experience!

Let's go over some things you mentioned.
The biggest issue here is that your agent didn't explain his suggestions to you correctly.

An example: suggesting consulting contractors - who often are
extremely helpful in evaluating the costs and possible other potential issues with the property -
it is a very good suggestion. If there are problems, you do want to find them out during the inspection period, and get out of the deal, if necessary. Inspectors have certain limitations as to what they can do/say, and they are often wrong on the costs or repairs (they are not contractors).

Emails are also better for the both of you - it's a record that can not be disputed.
It's protecting your interests, and it is protecting your agent's side of story.

Sometimes, people do inspections and make their offer afterwards, especially in a short sale or foreclosure transaction. If this was a normal sale - then yes, inspection should have been done after the last initial was put in on your contract/purchase and sales agreement (depending on the state you are in).

The main person who could help you immediately, is your agent's broker.
If he/she does not respond, send them a registered mail letter explaining this situation and requesting an immediate meeting. If there is no responce after the letter, it is time to call your state's real estate commission's office and ask for their help/guidance. You can also hire an attorney.

I'm very sorry that your buying experience was such a mess!
I do hope that from this point on things will be better for you!

Hope this helps,

Hi, Delawarehomebuyer,

I am a Banker for Citizens Bank and I would like to speak with you about what you are looking for.

Currently, there has never been a better time to purchase a home, and recieving an approval directly from the bank is the easiest and safest way to go.

Unlike dealing directly with a Real Estate agent, when you recieve an approval from a Bank, you can choose any home you want, with any agent, and know what you are approved for and how the process will work. We offer the lowest rates with great incentive programs and easy pay back options.

Feel free to give me a call anytime at my office number - 302-421-2229
or email me at
for more information!

Thanks and best of luck!

19801 is located in the City of Wilmington and is considered an urban area. Others have given you the website and told you to call the local police, which are the best suggestions. Good luck with your search and if I can be of assistance, don't hesitate to call me. ... more

Hi not knowing the details of your situation I can not say if this will help but you should at least look into it. We have had the services of Pre Paid Legal for years and use it all the time just to ask an attorney any legal question we may have, plus it protects us in so many ways go to the site listed below and click on "Equal Justice For All" to get to the main site. There you can read about all the plans offered, as little as $17 a month in most states. For pre existing they will only do a 25% discount but hey that is better than nothing and if you keep the plan you may find your next problem handled at no cost to you (depending of course on what you need) Check it out. I hope it helps just drop me a line if I can help you any further. ... more
