As far as â€œnot being able to view the homeâ€ I don't believe you will find recourse, but if you wish to pursue you could consult an attorney that specializes in real estate law. Even police officers need a warrant or probable cause to enter a home though and it doesnâ€™t sound like itâ€™s that serious. In real estate we just ask permission.
I have read cases where legal recourse was reached when a seller has second thoughts after accepting an offer but thatâ€™s not the case here.
If the homeowner is having second thoughts then perhaps its best that they donâ€™t let people see the home until they have had that discussion with their REALTORÂ®. Selling a home can be just as or even more emotional then buying a home. Weighing the potential profits against the memories of raising your children in a home can be a hard toll for some.
Also, keep in mind that we are all peopleâ€¦perhaps there is a very personal or much more important family situation that they feel deserves more attention then selling their home. You might try contacting their agent and see if they can give you any insight as to weather this home is going to continue to be on the market or if they plan to take it off the market?
