Hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent to represent you, not a regular buyer's agent. EBAs represent homebuyers only so there is no conflict of interest to jeopardize your negotiating position. Visit for a referral.

Dan Tabit answered:
Do you have an agent representing you? Was it this agent that changed up the terms? I agree, starting with the managing broker might be a start, but have an attorney on speed dial and make no promises you don't intend to keep until you talk to the attorney.
Buyer's often have many contingencies, but sellers rarely have any way out. You could refuse to do more than the bare minimum in terms of cooperation, but if the lawyer or broker don't see a way out you may be stuck.

I agree with previous commenters, it depends on the area and what is popular, but also what will last longer. Vinyl will definitely be more durable, so I would think that using it, even though it's more expensive upfront, will save you money in the long run if you are going to be in the home for a while. I would especially do the vinyl since it's a middle upper class home, because future buyers will be looking for higher quality materials.

Diane is correct, Trulia does not accept FSBO listings. There are sites that do, but if you posted here and on every other site that allows you to, you won't get the level of exposure that listing with a great local agent and appearing on your local MLS will get you.

A great agent is worth more than their commission, but a bad one or none at all can cost you way more than just a commission. Consider discussing your options with someone worth working with and then do whatever you feel is in your best interest. Best of luck however you proceed.
