I would place the property on the MLS for a minimum 7 days to make sure I was receiving the best offer.
Without having the home available for all of us to see here I have one suggestion. Have your agent let the other agents in their office visit your property to give their own opinions. PS Don't be home when they arrive.
I agree it could be a variety of reasons but it all boils down to price, doesn't it? Property is placed on the MLS not for location, or bad floor plans but for $$$$$.
Not that I know of without the buyer asking for specific performance. It may be best for you to avoid this issue by sitting down with your realtor or broker for an informative talk.
I don't. My job is to find the buyer the best value meeting all of their criteria. I want to get my clients into a home. The commission comes after the sale remember.
Ask the agent. I'm sure he has his reasons. Then you can determine the level of service you require for your dollar. Then counter his offer...
Pending Sale which means under contract.
Don't forget to check out hard money lenders as well. You'll pay higher interest though.
Your most reliable information will come from a realtor with local mls access. What a great way to interview agents too. Have an agent set you up on an email program sending you sales data as it occurs. Good luck.
Anything is possible. Contact your lender to see what programs they offer. Better yet contact a mortgage broker.
