Tiffany,

The problem is you said you signed the contract but did not mention if the seller signed it - also did it have a financing contingency or other escape hole for the seller-etc,etc,etc - the issue is not the type contract - it is what terms are in the contract and if it is executed or not.

You definitely need to contact a real estate attorney and like others have stated this is why you need to use REALTOR.

THE BEST REALTORS WILL TELL yOU THIS IS BEST HANDLED BY AN ATTORNEY AS LONG AS yOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING REQUIRED BY YOU AND THE CONTRACT IS VALID ( BOTH PARTIES REGAURDLESS OF THE PAPER IT IS WRITTEN ON WHERE CONSIDORED AT THE TIME OF AGREEMENT CREATED A BINDING AGREEMENT. HEARING YOUR SIDE OF THE STORY HE IS IN BREACH OF CONTRACT AND HAS OPENED HIMSELF UP TO LEGAL ISSUES
A CONTRACT IS ENFORCEABLE. SAVE ALL YOUR EMAILS AND ANY THING YOU HAVE - YOU MAY NOT WANT THE PROPERTY NOW JUST BECAUSE OF THE ILL FEELINGS BUT STAND YOUR GROUND

Forget this transaction. There is a reasons buyers should use a professional REALTOR. Your experience and disappointment demonstrates it. Don't make the same mistake again. Hopefully others can learn from your error.

Tiffany,

Read your contract in detail and contact a Real Estate Attorney...ASAP.

If you need advice as to strong attorney I would be happy to recommend one to you, but be prepared their advice is not without cost....especially a good one. They will be able to tell you if you have grounds for legal action and what steps you and they will need to take to solve this contractual issue.

If you find that you need a strong Realtor I would be happy to help you.

Definitely call an attorney if you feel that your contract was fully executed and the seller is in default of the contract. At the same time, it may not be worth a legal battle. Sorry that you are going through this problem. As my colleagues stated, an experienced Realtor would have been a helpful asset in helping protect your interests through this process. I wish you all the best for a good result and a happy home!!

If you have a binding agreement, the seller should be obligated to sell the property to you. You have a case, depending on what your agreement actually states. It is always best to consult a professional REALTOR. Accept no substitute

Did the Seller sign the contract? I suggest you have a real estate attorney review the contract. I would also suggest that you use a Realtor on your next purchase.. Normally the Seller will pay the commission to the Buyers agent.

I would be happy to represent you if you have additional real estate needs.

I would suggest contacting an attorney. In your next real estate transaction, have an agent represent you. Generally, buyers representation is free and paid for by the seller.
