If a buyer does not want to pay the price that I am asking for my house and the realtor cannot find a buyer to pay the price, can I take it off the market?

Call your agent and ask him. Most agents are able to work independently of their office. For all of my listings; calls and offers are directed towards my cell and email so I can work anywhere there is internet access. I'd assume in this day and age your agent is the same way. ... more

Hi Kathleen,

Having your local agent keep an eye on dollar per sq. ft. living area, Average Days on Market, and other factors will help you in pricing.

Kind regards,

Arpad

Hi - This is a bit late in replying you, so my guess is you have already figured out the answer.

However, if not, and just to answer the question posted - yes, y ou should be able to change your mind and not sell or not rent-to-own anymore. An agent can't force you to sell a house unless you have already signed a contract with a buyer (whether a regular sale or rent to own), then you will have to cancel that contract and possibly compensate the buyers and/or your agent (since he/she found an acceptable buyer for you).

Another thing to be careful about is to read the listing agreement you signed with your agent to see if you are obligate to pay him/her any fee/expenses they may have incurred, etc.

Reading and understanding the contracts you are going to sign (before listing) and/or already signed is vital in doing business.

Hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to call/text or email me wiith any questions

On contracts in writing what you see is what you get. Read it. You probably should consult an attorney. There could be some kind of an out.

If you do not live up to the terms of a contract, you may have to pay damages or the court can force "specific performance," which means they can force you to do it.

One thing is that if they miss anything you can claim they are breach, and cancel the contract. For example, if the contract calls for an appraisal to be one on a certain date and it is not done, they have breached you may cancel.

Better yet go to the buyer and tell them you would like to cancel and ask them to let you out. If they do not refer to the paragraph above.

If there is anything illegal about the contract it may be null and void too.

There is nothing you can do. Only the County has jurisdiction and I assume the are under funded and not going around writing tickets for property violations.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Yes, there is ALWAYS a time element in a listing agreement with a real estate professional. The duration of the agreement is variable. Some professionals are good at getting the seller to agree to sell low, therefore a shorter listing duration. Others realize the patient seller will profit more, and will require more time. Some professionals are proficient in creating a pool of passionate buyers and rarefied inventory creating the perfect storm of high price and short duration.

ALL listing agreements with a REALTOR include a "Termination/Cancellation" provision. Simply follow the steps in the provision and you can terminate an agreement prior to expiry date.

A review of the Cumming GA sales and market data, method of sale and list price may be necessary to turn 'nothing' into an accepted purchase agreement.

Best of success,
