11 Aug Help! Buyer backed out….
Our house went up for sale and we got two full-price contracts within 24 hours. Apparently we chose the wrong one. First time buyer I think got cold feet, because she backed out after the inspection. (House is 32 years old, yes there were some problems but pretty minor ones, some because that wasn't code when the house was built. We fixed some issues, gave a home warranty and some $$$, but she still backed out. I think, good old fashioned buyer's remorse.) Problem is, after your house is under contract, it disappears off Zillow and then when it went back up it said it had been on the market for 16 days even though it was only 1. This sucks for getting any other full-price offer as now people think we haven't gotten any offers. (Of course the other people that put in a contract had already put in a contract on something else.) We have shown five more times and not gotten any feedback whatsoever.
Is there anything I can do to help boost the sale? We closed on the new house this week and I don't want to be owning two houses…..
