You need to speak with a local attorney to see if you have any recourse against the seller or if he was in breach of the contract. The lender can do nothing to help you since they do not own the property. ... more

/////it seems unlikely that the seller will block the sale, to do so means a full outright foreclosure. At which point you can then ask the bank if they want to sell at the offered price you made them. We get lots of people thinking that if they block the sale, they will still be able to keep it, doesn't work that way. I would tell them that you will sue them for time and money lose if they keep up their shenanigans! ... more

If seller's objective is to sell now, make sure list price is closer to lower end of property value range, given the deteriorating property market and tightening credit? Second, see if owner financing is an option: this partially offsets tighter bank financing issues. Third, optimize web exposure and email: craigslist, zillow, yahoo, etc. are all low cost marketing platforms. Use email to get property infront of agents on periodic basis. Fourth see if barter is an option (trade property or other assets for his property). Finally, if you market as an investment, give market good idea of the numbers (eg. potential gross rents / list price is X%) and make sure it is the one of the best deals in the market. ... more

As a REALTOR, I always help clients to make an offer based upon comparable sold, active and expired properties. Based on that research, along with known information about the days on the market, condition of the home, motivation of the seller, and even selling history of the listing agent (Do most of the agent's listings sell less than list price and at what percentage?), a reasonable offer can be determined. On average, in the current market, homes tend to sell somewhere from 3% to 6% below list price, but you cannot base an offer on that.

If you would like assistance with making an offer, please feel free to contact me. I can do all of the above to help you get the property at the best price possible.

Best wishes,
