Consult an attorney. They need to read it, understand the terms and advise you. We aren't attorneys and don't have a copy of what you signed.

My NC Homes Team answered:
the buyer can back out per the terms of the contract with your Relo company just as they could with you. The fact that you're RELO company is taking over actually changes nothing about the contract/process other than to make it much more complicated and time consuming than it would otherwise be. RELO companies add nothing to any real estate transaction but aggravation and unnecessary expense (though not to you) I won't take listing when there's a RELO company involved and their among my least favorite transactions when i'm representing a buyer who is purchasing a RELO owned house. ... more

I would highly suggest contacting your listing agent. He/she needs to fix this ASAP! This is why it's important to list with a Realtor because they take care of all these details.

Good luck to you! I hope your home sells at full price!

It's not too late. It's common to see showings slow this time of year. Be sure your home is always show ready and be sure to keep in touch with your agent for recommendations. The market is constantly changing and it's important to respond. It might be a good idea to review the feedback you received when you were getting lots of showings. ... more

Robert Robbins answered:
Your answer is hard to pin down due the fact that some fees associated with closing a loan in GA are fixed while some are based on Percentages. It is easier to talk in generalities, generally speaking you have several break downs
1st the mortgage originator fees, include origination%0+, discount%0+, processing$600-800, underwriting$600-900, credit$25, flood$13 - if they are not paying any upfront points (to discount the rate) on the loan(wouldn't recommend with these rates) then I would say some where between 800-1000 is normal for us

2nd Title charges these are harder - Title search%, title insurance(for the lender)%, Title insurance(for the Buyer)%, Attorney's Fee$200-400, GA's State Intangibles tax%
a good rough estimate is to expect these to add up to approx 1.25 - 1.5% of the loan size

Even easier use this as a guide
50k loan would be looking at approx 1800-2200
100k loan would be looking at approx 2500-3000
200k loan would be looking at approx 3500-4200
in most cases I tell most of my mortgage clients to get the agents to contract between 3% or 5k in Seller Contributions/closing costs to cover everything they should normally need.

As far as to what your responsible for 000 but for this being a buyers market it's almost guaranteed to be asked for. So with your payoff, the agent/agents commissions, any remaining escrows. I would definitely budget in either 5k or 3% which ever is less

Also have you made arrangements to purchase a new home? If you should need any help please feel free to call.
I hope that this has been helpful.
Best Wishes,

Will you get your money back dollar for dollar? Probably not. Will your house sell more quickly, have more traffic and get a higher price than it would have with carpeting installed? Definitely. So you'll be "getting your money back" that way.
Whenever my sellers ask a question like this, I have to remind them of ALL the homes out there that will probably not sell at all--whatever you can afford to do to make it more attractive to potential buyers and help it sell more quickly and at a higher price, I would do.
Hardwoods are a definite "hot button" for many buyers (many of my buyers have me set up automatic property searches for them that ONLY include homes with hardwoods). Just make sure you have to money to install quality hardwoods or don't do it. I have a great hardwood installer/refinisher that is quite reasonable and actually does work for Georgia Tech and companies in other states. Contact me if you need him information!

Rhonda -

With the fluctuation in the current market condition house values are changing monthly on appraisals. This especially holds true in 30075 zip. If you’re selling your house it needs to have that certain zip or something to make it stand out & superb negotiation skills.
