Only a professional Realtor can enter and edit listings on Trulia. Do you have a Realtor?

There are attorney's involved. You have little choice but to let them do their thing.
Press your attorney to reveal your plan B and plan C.
Finally ask your agent about the status of the back-up buyer and their ability to close quickly. The buyer has created this window of opportunity and now is the time to play that card. ... more

surely you understand the it's not what you pay in commission that's important, it's what you net.

if you save a 5% commission but sell for 7% to 10% less than if the property was listed with a broker, you net less in your pocket.

good luck

What you end up with can be greatly influenced by which buyer you select.
After a thorough price beat down, you may fall pray to the banks Fiat appraisal.
Your real estate professional needs to run interference for you to prevent this scenerio.
Each real estate transaction is different.
The real estate professional you hired knows where your house compares in value to competing home. If any of that $245,000 if fluff, you know, padding for negotiation, padding for professional expenses, padding for emotional elements...what you end up with can be dramaticly different from your expectation.
When your agent listed your home at the agreed upon price, you were presented with a net-sheet that detailed all expenses and what you would end up with. Be aware, your agent will not set the price, you do. If you fail to follow their advise, and overprice, the results tend to scatter disappointment over everything. Without a proper analysis, any prediction is simply pulling a number out of the air. 20% less is as good a guess as any.
With the data provded, who knows, you could end up with $245,000!

Dont give your house away Sandy. 60 days on the market thats pretty good. We are living in a ghost market right now. Some of these short sales make others look bad. Look at whats out there selling right now, compare. I purchased a home in texas a foreclosure and i am getting ready to sell my house. I have been in your area since they were newly built. I am the original owner and i know im going to have to sit still for a while and thats ok. Everyones situation is different. I am not sure how fast you have to sell. But these are quality built homes. Consider to tell your agent to go back to those people that did see your home whats going on with them now? And have your agent give them feedback as to the price your at now. Sometimes they do come back. Thats what happend to me in Texas. Good luck on your sale. ... more

Why not contact an attorney specializing in real estate--if you do go ahead with your plan you will need legal documentation for protection--he/she will be able to recommend the best way to proceed if any. ... more
