From your description it sounds like the bank is taking the property from the buyer through Foreclosure. This happens when the buyer is in default of the loan agreement. This process can take many months, even a year or more, depending on the lender and the terms of the note. The lender would not be able to discuss the details of the foreclosure or the property with anyone other than the owner of the property due to the privacy laws. ... more

Well first you didn't need to use an inspector that was recommended by the agent. You just have to use an inspector that is licensed by the state. Now just because they listing agent and the selling agent (the agent working for your son) work for the same company that is not a issue to worry about. They still can stay independent and the agent should not be sharing private information with anyone. With this in mind the inspector should have been independent too. The inspector should have been looking to do the best job for your son because he/she would want your son to send them new business.

NOW! that is that is the way it should work. If you think there is hanky panky call it. it's a $100.00 down. Keep in mind there is a chance the seller could come after them legally. But as for getting out of the contract. I don't think and agent can make the call for to me it sounds like legal advice. An Attorney is the only one that can make that call. Take the contract, inspection report and every thing you have to an attorney. Mind you I am pretty sure the house being located near the interstate will not be a reason to not close but I think the damp corner or the low spot in the kitchen floor is. If anything else make the seller fix the issues they will not and you won't close. But this all needs to be done by an attorney. If you need one, let me know.

You have generated a little controversy here. My suggestion is to see if you can find an agent licensed in both IL and Wisc. Your description sounds so luxurious but the reality is probably, location, location, location. You are probably WAY OVER PRICED for your area but DIRT CHEAP for what you are offering. You need to target specific PEOPLE, the Kohler family, the Pritzker family, the Crown family. I don't think your location will appeal to the typical luxury, international market. You need to find the rich mid-Westerners.

You might also want to look at "highest and best use." Could this be zoned as a horse camp resort or a B&B?

Jim is quite the character and I'm glad he came to Ian's defense. You might also enjoy his posts to my similar question:

Later, Jim found a WSJ article titled "Underpriced at $100 million" that he forwarded to me. That is in the web reference.
