I will assume by your question that you are not represented by a Realtor, otherwise you'd be turning to him or her for advice.

The best I can offer is to call the 1st buyer (btw - why do you prefer him to the 2nd, higher offer??) and let him know you received a higher offer - let him know you'd like to stay with him, so want to know if he will reconsider, and then offer his "highest and best" number.

If the terms of the first offer are that much better (ie - all cash, or a high down payment, or, the buyers have nothing to sell, etc) then you might want to make sure you do nothing to scare him away!
Best wishes......

You really need to review your situation with someone who specializes in these sorts of transactions. If the property is in Florida, I know someone who can help.

And one word of warning, the banks are well aware that they can get more money if they simply foreclose, so make sure you do this right!

Did you take the 45 hour course or the 75 hour course? If you took the old 45 hour course you missed your opportunity to take the exam on July 1st. You will need to take an additional 30 hours of class work in order to get your license.
