When does the home expire? You can find the information on the listing agreement/contract. I would contact the local board of Realtors in the area as well as consulting with an Attorney.
Is the manager the Broker of the office?

I'm Kim Benedict of Coldwell Banker, Yes you do have to remove it as its a hazard to the environment and you will need to make sure the ground and water wasn't contaminated around the tank. Its better to do it sooner then later and a MUST if your going to sell your home! How long have you owned the home?

If you need help or need question answered Im more then happy to help you find a certified company to help you get it removed. I live close by and have a home in Gaylordsville for sale...

A seller is in a contractual agreement with the listing agent. The buyer too has representation therefore any discussion usually goes through the agent, however renegotiating a commission with a buyer is not an acceptable approach, this could actually cause a conflict and derail the transaction. ... more

Todd Sargent answered:
All properties you see on Trulia are homes listed by Real Estate Agencies. Trulia, Zillow, etc all pull the information you see online from the Multiple Listing Service the agencies use to market homes for sale. Your best bet will be to connect with a local agent in the areas you would like to consider for your home to work for you in researching and finding the properties you would like to consider buying! The online websites are merely a tool to help you research homes listed for sale. ... more

I just had a listing with this situation. I did a lot of open houses so I could see and talk to buyers that came in. I had a lot of traffic and mostly positive feedback. I had a lot of showings and mostly positive feedback. Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to figure it out. The biggest problem was something we couldn't change that really narrowed the market: the master bedroom was upstairs. Newer homes have the master down. Baby boomers want a master down. This was a deal breaker for many. Had to do a price drop even though it was showing better than anything else in the area. I suggest going out to see the other homes that are on the market in your area to see what you are up against. Ask your agent which homes have gone under contract instead of yours. Bring in some fresh eyes to give an opinion. Hire a stager. Take care of a few little freshening up things. Get professional pictures done. ... more

If you refuse that contingency, I would take my offer off the table. I understand why you wouldn't want that as a seller, but no buyer or competent buyer's agent would submit to those terms in this lending environment unless they were stealing the house from you.
Typically if the house doesn't appraise for the agreed upon price or more you would have the options of seeking another appraisal to meet that price, lowering the price to the appraised amount or the buyer would need to have sufficient cash to make up the difference as the bank won't consider it.
Appraisals are out of the agent's hands these days. We can no longer call on our local appraiser and threaten them with the loss of our business if they don't come in at value or better. Appraisers are supposed to be independent and non-partisan to the buyer, seller or lender. The current system has flaws, but it works for now.
