What are our recourses if buyer breaks contract?

Answer
I'll echo the advice from Joan, below, but let you know that likely you'll find that you have two options:  keep the buyer's (hopefully strong) deposit as liquidated damages and/or take them court and sue for specific performance (i.e., have a judge make them conform to the terms of the contract.)  Most sellers in that situation just cut their losses by taking the deposit and going looking for a buyer who will actually close rather than spin their wheels in the often-fruitless attempt to make someone buy a house who doesn't want it.Best of luck!

Why is your zestimate 100,000 less than my appraisal???

Answer
You're not alone!  Zestimates are only intended to be very rough guesses based on publicly-available information.  A market analysis by an experienced real estate agent, or an appraisal from a licensed appraiser (which are two different things and may result in two different values themselves) are more dependable looks at what your house might actually sell for.

PLEASE REMOVE MY LISTING INFO ASAP!

Response
I don't know what the XML file is or how to remove it.  I'm not asking you to change any of the property data, just my info ... can't that be done manually?

PLEASE REMOVE MY LISTING INFO ASAP!
Please help me remove my brokerage info from a listing that no longer belongs to me:  11031 Bondurant Drive in Midlothian, VA.  All the photos and text can stay, it just can't have my photo, name or brokerage affilliation on it.  I've removed the Postlets ad that fed the Zillow listing, but that hasn't changed the Zillow data.  Thanks for your help - Shannon Harton

Releasing a home that's been "claimed" so I can list it.
Greetings!  I've got a new listing at 4417 Joseph Drive, Glen Allen, VA  23060 that I'm having a hard time putting in as for sale--I believe my seller had posted it ("claimed it"?) but he tells me he's released it so I can upload more info about it ... only I still can't.  Can you tell me what I need to do?  Thanks!
