Does this attorney have a Real Estate License or just a Law license. If he presented herself as an attorney then she need to stay in her Lane. Yes you can only if you chooses to give something towards the closing cost but no demand will be met and Let her know this is Plano where houses are in short supply and you can easlity find a nother buyer before the weekend.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, (this does not require us pulling your credit) that will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted via my profile information for a no obligation consultation. My Office hours are 08:00 AM-08:00 PM Mon-Fri and Fri and Sat 08:00 AM-06:00 PM CST.

Your question could also be asking: If 3 REALTORS come to do a Listing Presentation and 1 says $400 anther $420 and another 499k......

You list with the unrealistic agent at $499k because you want to hold her to it!!! "LOL"
NO.... your home is only worth what someone is willing to pay.
Some realtors like to guarantee the Listing by going higher on a CMA Value, but that is in NOONE's Best interest. As a seller you will be reducing slowly each month, just to try and chase the market. That is not a good thing. The longer your home sit the worst it is. The questions from buyers will become...."Why hasnt it sold??" Whats wrong with the home..... You dont want to chase the market.

The buyers mortgage company will also do a APPRAISAL and it the offer amount is not what the appraisal value is, you will need to REDUCE or REMOVE IT FROM THE MARKET.

You Need 3 Comparable sales to figure out what your home value is.....NOT JUST 1 Neighbor "3"

FHA appraisals will stay attached to the property for 6 months. You can try to resell after 6 months.
Or try to get a CONVENTIONAL Buyer.

But usually the appraisers will be close to each other.

I highly recommend if you get 3 realtors, that are very different, you list between, the bottom 2.

Realtors usually dont like hurting feelings, but if you want the home to sell you need to be realistic.

Beside's you can always get over asking and a bidding war if you price it right!!
Bidding wars are the best way to go, you get to pick the buyer based on Money down and most likely to get approved. "Instead of take what you can get and prey."

Sometimes if you ahve it listed in TWO MLS's the second one won't go through because the address is the same.

However, I have found that regardless of if your company feeds direct to Trulia, you can go to MY Listings and manually add it and/or edit it.. If it's a problem still, contact Trulia for help. They are very responsive. ... more

Allan Schuster answered:
If the buyer does not respond the offer is essentially void. The property should continue to be marketed. Some agents won't even mark their proerties as in attorney review for this very reason. Nothing is binding until it is under contract as agreed to by the attorneys. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
No, once both buyer and seller sign it, then the 3 day closck starts, if an attorney fails to respond within the 3 days then the period expires and the contract is in force. The only way the buyer could back out is if there is a contingincy such as home inspection or financing. then if they gove notice within teh dates specified on the contract , they may. ... more
