Can the seller back out of a deal with no explanation during the appraisal process?Our appraisal came in 10k below the purchase price that we had agreed on. We asked seller if we could renegotiate based on the appraisal value, and right away they told us we had to put in an extra 5k or there's no deal. We never got any addendum to the contract to sign, and the listing agent went ahead and tried to cancel escrow before we could even tell the seller that we would just agree to pay the 5k. What can we do?March 23 2012 - San Diego00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
