At this point, you should see an attorney.
I am not aware of any contract that would allow one party to bar or impede the ability of performance of the other and then punish non-performance with cancellation.
In any contract both parties have responsibilities and obligations.
Again, see an attorney.

Good luck!

You cannot update the data.

Although it is unsettling to see the wrong information and subsequent value associated with your home, trust me when I tell you - the values are not real - and never were "real" to begin with.

When you sell your home your real estate professional will provide an estimate of market value to you based upon accurate data, fact-finding to the absolute truth! Just as you know the information is wrong, so will the buyer of your home.

Between now and then, your home could become a garage apartment or morph into a mansion. Check back again when you want a chuckle.

In the meantime, don't worry!

Thanks for your answers. Houses seem to be selling for about $271,000. My concern is that if I come down to $273K I will not have much negotiating room given I don't want to sell for less than $270K. I had my home appraised and it came in at about $273K. What would you suggest for a new listing price? Thanks. ... more

Marty Remo answered:

Here's a few things that you should know at this point in your deal:

1) Has the buyer signed the contract and put up their downpayment?
* Your Attorney will know. Typically, the down payment is forwarded to your attorney's escrow account.
2) Has the property been inspected?
*Your agent will know.
3) Do you have the name and number of the mortgage rep that they are working with?
*Your agent should know. You need to find out if they have applied for the mortgage. Typically, the appaiser will not go out to the property until all parties have signed the contract.

I'm glad I'm not alone. Way too many agents that are pretending to be experts.
