One may wish to consider, is it worth having an Open House. Some markets DO NOT lend themselves to an Open House. We live in a Vacation/Resort and second home market. While there are a few that may show up to an Open House, it's usually just brokers. Typically, we only have 2-3 of them show up. For Brokers, it seems to be better during the week to have an Open House. On the weekend brokers are showing homes to Buyer Clients. Those clients have already decided which homes they will see be looking on line. It just doesn't pay to spend hours traveling in a rural area to get to an Open House. We have even teamed as Brokerage Firms to have several Open Homes in a close area. Still, it's mostly the Brokers that show up, and then only a few. Same goes for holiday weekends when we have a lot of visitors. We do better with walk-in traffic than an Open House. In Metro areas where there can be several homes of similar type within a few blocks, Open House may work. In our area, it doesn't matter which day of the week, people just don't come. The NAR reported that in 2015 only 13% of home sales were in rural areas and only 2% were in vacation/resort areas. Look at your market, talk to other "local" brokers and see what works. An Open House may or may not work for you, regardless of the day you choose. ... more

In Virginia, a financing contingency automatically extends to the closing date, unless it's specifically changed in the contract terms, so if you were here, you wouldn't have cause to cancel.

As Dan says, have an attorney review the terms of your contract and tell you your options.

Why would you want to cancel instead of pursuing this transaction? Do you really want to put your property back on the market and start over?

Sounds like a communication, or lack of, issue between the parties. If you have an agent, ask them to get details from the buyers agent and loan officer to find out why there is a delay. There are a lot of desks a loan file goes across, could be held up for some mundane reason somewhere.

estimate. How do I get this estimate and photo adjusted so that when we put our home up for sale in the very near future, buyers will get a more correct view of both the home and the price?

Adam J. Nelson answered:
Think it depends on the care and attention offered by the staging agent. For some of my buyers, I find they have difficulty conceptualizing how furniture will fill the space for standard living. For others, they fixate on the design aesthetics of the decor, losing perspective of the home. I believe in minimal staging provides enough of a story, but the home should be able to show itself. ... more

Condition is good, location outstanding but unique floor plan.
Not anything to improve without major construction ( I.e. Build a garage, move the stairway)!
Price was agreed to with realtor after market analysis, BUT government shut down and sequestration affected buyers. Just starting to see activity before the holidays. How much (% wise) reduction on pric for first price change?
Thank you all.

Although there are mitigating factors such as price and new influx of buyers looking to downsize. Three bedroom homes normally appeal to a larger spectrum of buyers. We can assist you with a buyers market review and show you the past sales in the area. As buyers agent we represent you free of charge.

Sadly, none of these realtors answered your simple question: "can you cancel the contract due to the conditions in the commitment letter?"

They all just attempted to convince you to go through with the sale. They are only looking out for themselves. Remember this and use a real estate attorney next time. Although generally just as slimy, they are at least professionals. Let the listing agent perform the only action that realtors are qualified to do - unlock a door and let you into a home for sale. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
It sounds like you have given a good effort to resolve your problems with no beneficial help from the lender.

As I see it, you next step might be to contact a good real estate attorney to represent you. The fact of the matter is that the common guy doesn't get the respect they deserve. Attorneys on the other hand, tend to get their attention. What it will cost for legal support might be well worth the investment.

Time to take it up a notch!
