Your question is a little unclear. Who is not responding? Are you attempting to purchase a home with the sale of your home as a contingency? If that's the case, it can be tough to get an offer, that is contingent on the sale of another property, accepted over an offer that does not have that contingency. You may be offering a cash payment for the house, and no appraisal contingency, which makes for a very strong offer...if it is liquid CASH. An offer that is contingent on the sale of another home is not a true cash offer, as the cash is not liquid yet.. ..thus, getting a seller to "respond" to, or accept , your offer over another , even one that requires a loan and an appraisal, can be difficult. Be patient, and keep trying. Look at properties that may have been on the market a bit longer, and more willing to work with you...and willing to wait for you to sell your house. Or, you may do better if you wait until you have your home in escrow, preferably with all buyer contingencies removed (ask the buyer of your home for a longer escrow or make the acceptance of the offer on your home, contingent on you finding a suitable replacement property) and then your "contingency" is less "scary" to the seller. . . In this market, in most price points, you as the seller have the upper hand. Unfortunately, you are also a buyer in this situation. You may even want to complete the sale of your home, rent temporarily while you can then take your time to find the right home. In that situation you will be a strong all cash offer.
