Are you working with an agent? Make sure that you are appropriately priced for your area. Review your agent's marketing plan including the listing. Your agent should be getting feedback from agents showing your house. ... more

Gosh, she shouldn't be giving her opinion, particularly when it is pointing out things that are wrong with the place.
If she can't concentrate on the positive, she should not say anything.

Good luck and may God bless

Dear Tina,

You have signed a contract and if the buyers have performed what they were supposed to do and you don't, they can hold you to the contract.

They can actually file and action that puts a cloud on the title called a Lis Pendens. What that means to you is that you cannot sell the property until the dispute has been resolved.

I suggest you consult an attorney!

Call a Realtor or several in your area and ask your questions. You will pay Realtor fees when you sell but also don't forget title insurance for the buyer, possible state and local taxes on the sale, Most Realtors can give you an Approximate Proceeds estimate that will list all the seller costs so that you will have a good idea what you will have available. Also ask for buyer closing costs, however, so that you will not misjudge what price home you can purchase. Most home prices have been falling in the past several years, so it is a good time to purchase if you have the profit from the sale of your current home and additional savings. Please be careful that you have additional savings that you will leave in savings, however, for emergencies. It is never a good idea to have every penny wrapped up in real estate or any other investment for that matter. Generally financial advisors suggest from 6 to 12 months living expenses in savings whenever possible. Good luck to you. ... more
