I wanted to share about my experience. I did write a post but don't think it went through. I hate the house we purchased this past Sept 2016. We live on an island. My back yard has a canal. The front faces a bay where the park is. I hate it because all the park people can see my house and if I have the windows open can see inside. I like my privacy but have none. Along with the creepy crawlys that live on the water. The house has negativity as I find my husband and I argue all the time. And we both keep getting sick. The house is more than we can afford and I want out. He seems to think if I put my touches on it everything will be fine. I have done a few upgrades but can't do nor do I want to do anymore. The house was poorly built. It's freezing in the winter and is surrounded by too many windows. Along with its 90's decor. I just want out. I have a plan to save 10,000.00 again but it's gonna take a while. I feel like we got duped by the realator who saw two suckers and I miss my old house. And although I did want to move I just wanted a house with a bigger back yard and a pool. I liked the area where we used to live and miss it. I am not a lake person. Thank you for listening. ... more

Trulia does not edit listings, you have to have the agent who listed it previously, edit their listing moving it to expired or withdrawn.

Why do realtors ignore a sellers rights even though the seller is paying their commission? and why do realtors think that they are God's gift to society when they are two steps down from the crooked "used car salesman" stigma, a stigma well deserved by most dealers. Most realtors are uneducated and have never held a job of any substance until they come into a sales office and sit, or drive around waiting for some sucker to walk in the door or a call that may come in. ... more

Be careful! I'm in a terrible situation where the buyer of my home experienced some water issue shortly after the sale and is now suing me. I'm learning the hard way that even though we never had one single issue with the water, once a lawsuit is filed you basically have the right to defend yourself which is costly. I'm terrified to ever move again after this awful experience. So if you are having any sort of issue it's better to disclose! People are crazy and you might be held liable for problems that weren't existing when you owned the home! ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor & NYC area resident, this is tricky. The issue is whether or not you gave your agent all the buyers names who visited your home before you signed the listing contract. I'm guessing you never did. Ooops. Unless your agent has all the buyers names who visited your home, it will be tough to prove that this particular buyer saw your home before you signed the listing contract. This means your agent will demand you pay a commission even though this buyer saw your home before.

Here is what you need to do. 1) Tell your agent the names of some buyers who visited your home before and make sure it's added into the listing contract. Your agent may balk and claim "foul". Real estate agents refuse to take listings if they know there are buyers who may come back and the seller can sell the house without the agent earning a commission.
2) Ask the buyer if they can wait a few months to close. In the meantime, contact the Broker in Charge or Office Manager and ask to cancel / withdraw the listing. The Broker or Office Manager needs to approve it and sign off. Your agent does not make the final decision on this. There is probably a clause in your contract that states you cannot sell your home for X number of months after the contract has ended. This is to protect the brokerage that you (the seller) will not sell your home behind their backs and prevent them earning a commission. This only works if your buyer can hold off for a few months.
3. If the above doesn't work, then you're stuck selling your home to this buyer and paying your agent a commission.
