If you can actually sell it yourself and have the time to meet buyers at your house when a buyer wants to see it and do the state required paperwork and deal with inspectors and issues that pop up, then you might be ok. It is a well known fact that FSBO buyers always want deep discounts from the asking price since they know you are saving money going FSBO and they want some of those savings too.
How much marketing will you need to spend? If you are on a busy street and sign might be all you need. If you are in an area where only GPS and a guide are needed to find you then it won't be so easy.

When you tire of trying, call a Realtor .

"The Purchase Agreement has a "Further Condition: ...If the appraisal does not meet the purchase price the seller has the option to reduce the purchase price to that value. "

well - you took that option - you said you did meet the appraisal on that, it appears as though the option money would be forfeited if the buyer didn't move forward with the sale. need to get legal advice......this is only my opinion.

Turn to your agent and a real estate attorney!

It sounds like you need to market your home with a "triple play". For sale, lease option, and for lease. For more information, go to In today's marketplace, you need to "think outside the box" to move to your next home. We have literally been signing up 5-8 home sellers on either a triple play option or just straight lease of a home that is not selling. If you are building in Zionsville, it sounds like you have the resources to hold onto this for a few years, rent out, then sell when the market is better and allow you to pocket tens of thousands of dollars more then if you needed to sell now.

To give you an idea of the types of homes we manage and rent out, take a look at the over 40 single family homes we have for rent right now at
