Long before the current downturn in the market when most people didn't know what a short sale was, people brought money to the table when they owed more than they could get for their homes. Agents bring value to a transaction. A good agnt will maximize your price, terms and final net. Trying to sell by owner limits your market to buyers looking to save themselves the commission. Using a limited service company may leave you exposed in some areas of contract expertise and negotiating against professionals.
I'd suggest getting the best agent available and try to minimize your loss or stay put for a while. Sorry.

I do not see any currently listed for sale.
One sold in May for a little over $500,000.
The last one before that I show was April last year for about $300,000.
Let me know if I can provide you with more specific info on a specific address. ... more

Kathy Fisher answered:
Even though you had come to agreement on sales prices, the contract was still, basically, contingent until your option period was over. YES, it should have been placed on Active Option, but the seller can request for their agent to still actively advertise the property until the contract actually becomes "PENDING". At that time, the agent is obliged to place the property in that status and stop actively advertising the property as available.
I guess I don't understand what you are asking because in the end, you didn't go through with the purchase anyway. Am I missing something? If you were asking if the seller could have negoiated another offer during this period, NO. They could, however, have taken a "back up" offer in the even that the home purchase did not go through.
Hope this answered your question to some extent.

It is like cars. If you buy what is on the lot, especially one that they have been sitting on for a while, they will negotiate. If you are "ordering" the car you want, you will pay sticker price. It is worth your time to write up an offer, only offer $20k less now. Two can play the game.

Good luck,
