Assuming you aren't paying cash, the appraisal is one of those things that has to come back to make a deal go through. One of the little secrets of real estate is that appraisers will usually come up with the necessary numbers to make a deal go through if they can be remotely justified. The fact that yours has come in 40,000 below your full price offer is pretty clear evidence that you're (significantly) overpaying for the property.

Your best option is to tell your buyer's agent that you'll buy the home for the 40k lower number, or find another property to make an offer on. You can list a home for anything you wish, but with an appraisal 40k below what the seller is asking, the seller has to realize that he or she will never sell it for that higher amount. Remember, the situation in the residential real estate market has changed dramatically from the boom years between 2000-2005 and this is a buyer's market. If you walk away it could be months or years before another buyer comes along.

While you're at it, you may look for another agent - one who will bring a fair offer on your behalf instead of someone who is only interested in maximizing their commission.

I'm very sorry about this situation.
However, the best way to handle it is to go see an attorney.
If you do one thing the wrong way (some word is missing in the notice) - you might have this nightmare continue much longer than you deserve.

There are some young attorney who work pro-bono, and you can check this with your state's bar association.

Best of luck in resolving this,
