While trying the FSBO route is tempting, please keep in mind that this is a
very difficult profession and you should strongly consider hiring an agent
who has been selling homes for many years and has seen the changes
the market has gone through and understands this is not a 40 hour, 5 day
per week job.
I live in Lake Hills and we are sort of "off the usual track" as far as
buyers go. Its great living back in here amongst the wildlife but you need
a professional to bring the buyers in.
I urge you to reconsider.

Failure to disclose can be the worst thing that can ever happy to a seller. More disclosure the better. Perhaps he wanted to make sure you did not get yourself into a place you can't get out of. I would talk with his broker as there are there to help out.

Can you sue him, that question would be for a real estate attorney to answer.
I wish you the best of luck,

Though i am not an attorney, and therefore cannot give legal advice, this seems like a matter for the executor, not a Realtor. Given the small dollar amounts involved one must wonder why you care - Unless you are the executor/executrix. If you are the responsible party i would consult with an attorney first, but would be thinking about ordering the sale once you get a clear title via quiet title filing. And how do you know it will sell for only 24K ? ... more

I absolutely agree with your broker. The first position buyer should always be willing to pay for the earnest money deposit to show their seriousness as well as commitment to the deal. Otherwise, why change the status from "active" to "pending" if the buyer is simply casting about between several homes to see which one approves the sale first.

My buyers always pay the EMD on a short sale home when they are purchasing the property. This also, in my mind, provides proof to the bank that the buyers are commited to the purchase.

Just my two cents...

Even though the title company didn't pay off the remaining debt, their response is that the debtor incurred the debt and the title company is not resonsible for debts incurred by others.

your closing papers, ie: escrow instructions will have a clause to this effect.
