Your agent should have done a better job of explaining. She didn't send the addendum to the buyer without your signature, did she? I don't know what your purchase agreement says, but generally, if the buyer's offer is contingent on an appraisal, the buyer would have the right to cancel the agreement if the appraisal is insufficient. The seller is not obligated to lower the price, but the buyer may cancel. Usually, most buyers and sellers negotiate something satisfactory to both parties, but they are not required to.
Bring up your concerns with your Broker, the one your agent works for. Hopefully your Broker can explain how your particular purchase agreement works and advise you what you can do.
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.
Hope this helps!

Are you buying or selling by owner? If not our agent should be answering these questions for your

The buyer typically pays for both the inspection and the appraisal. Repairs if they are done are typically paid for by the seller, but it really is not that simple. The seller could refuse to pay for repairs and you could back out of the deal.

You are right, it is a lot of money to spend to find out. This is one of the things that agents do for you, they already know what is customary for the area.

You only need ask the Realtor if they have investment training to find a good one to work with. They should understand how to work with tenants in place and knowledge of that field.

Are you looking to buy or sell? If you are looking to purchase a home, than you might want to find the best "Buyers Agent". You want someone who is focused on finding you a home. If you want to sell your home, then find the best "Listing Agent". Although most Realtors can do both, many are more focused on one of these two options.

I would also recommend that you focus on quality, not quantity. I have know many agents that have high volume, but often they cannot give 100% effort to each client.

I would suggest that you meet and interview a couple of prospective agents. Pick the one that you will feel the most comfortable with and have the most confidence in.

I sold several homes in Carson last year. At this time I am actively working with several Carson buyers. Becasue of this, I am very familiar with the different areas of Carson and what the homes sell for.

If you want more information, feel free to contact me at any time.
