Of course, we have to say here - consult a lawyer immediately. Their word is the professional one here, not ours. My non-legal advice is to talk to the buyer and let them know your situation. Maybe you can come to a mutual agreement to stop the sale. ... more

Hi txnonnie

Call me I am interested in hearing your situation and it isn't quite clear on here what you're inquiring on? Guessing you listed your home, as is , now buyer is wanting repairs and your now below purchase price and your ideal net? Sounds like your agent is lazy. Or just not performing his or her duties as your realtor.
Phone is 6143520723
Would like to help if possible

Typically in near all cases when this occurs, broker and agent have a '90' day protection period, if they brought a ready and willing buyer presented with a purchase agreement of offer of some type and seller doesn't pursue and then followed through or other deal that fell dry , ye protection clause ensures their commission and contracted amount. If you canceled purchase agreement AND listing contract short of timeframe this is pretty self explanatory why one would pay outside of contract that was 'cancelled'

But generally speaking above is right, generally, but depending on the specifics and details in the listing agreement and purchase this answer might be different. Feel free to call if you have questions on this in a general sense.. I would be happy to help also if you haven't reached your goal !6143520723
Good luck!

In over twenty years I have never seen a lease/purchase close. I have written contracts, but have never seen a succesful conclusion for the seller. In talking with an experienced closer of 25 years at HER Real Living she has never seen one either.

My advice is not to go down this path.

HI Linda,

Right now condo sales are flat. I have 2 condos listed right now and neither are selling. With the economy, it might be better for you to rent it for a year or so, until things improve. But make sure you speak with a lawyer and get the propeper agreement drawn up, before doing so.

One of my Realtors just sold a home with a very small back yard to a handicapped individual. Check into making your home accessible. The first floor master would lend itself to this idea. Might be able to add some hand rails, etc. ... more

Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear that - have you contacted your HUD office to gather all of the appropriate documents. To be FHA approved, you have to meet many guidelines. There are stiuplations on the number of rental units in the complex and there are also rules on how much reserve you have and if there are any financial problems (back payment of condo fees, etc). These are just a few, but I know with lots of foreclosures it can cause problems.

Good luck - it will certainly help attract more buyers if you get yourselves back on the list. This is becoming a common problem in the condo world.
