They connected me with this family that have signed contract and redo the date over and over again.
Can I relist with someone else while this contract is still ongoing?
I started to list the house as per CV,,dropped price15k below that. the ones that did sign the contract got it even 10k cheaper,,so 25 k under CV.
I gave them those 10k since I thought I was to be out of this by x-mas,,but they never get theirs sold.

Next time they want an extension on the contract, you could instruct your solicitor to put a clause in to make it go unconditional unless they have sold. You also give an opt out under those conditions unless they have sold. My solicitor did that for me when I had keen buyers who had a really crappy house to sell and I thought I'd have to wait forever and miss the place I had my heart set on. There was a further buyer behind me and I knew I'd lose out if I couldn't meet the deadline.

The wording of the agreement went
Special condition of sale.
This agreement is conditional upon cancellation or termination of the existing signed agreement for the sale of the property between the vendor and messers..........now it rambles on a bit, but the gist is, that if the purchaser could not meet the cash clause within the 7 days grace, or have their own house under contract, then the agreement was terminated.
This way, you can both bow out gracefully and no one gets caught without a home. You should also multi list it with any agents with good sales records, but don't compromise your asking price. You can also have another buyer in waiting, if the first contract falls over, or can't go unconditional there is a back-up.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

I'm no expert on Real Estate issues but my feeling is that you need to do something along the lines of what stikkibeek suggested.

Put it this way, your agent has no real need to bring in other buyers (so no extra costs to them) if they think you are going to coast along waiting for these guys to get their act together. Maybe they are overpriced and cruising as you haven't put presssure on for a result. Hope that makes sense.

I'd be interested to hear how long these postponements are taking in terms of weeks or months. Tell your agent that you are are not prepared to extend again and you will be cancelling their agency at that time. Hell most people only list for 3 months with an agent and then consider extending it. Twelve months? No way - as my brother found out!

Mind that is me - I am fairly stroppy when I want something so I'd be keen to hear others opinions.

Didi, Having been to Hestias little place in the country, she is residing in an area that has had several factories/industrial places close or shrink in size.. Not quite close enough to auck to be a peace home for the city folk with kids wanting a horse, and not big enough for the LSBer who thinks 10 acres is necessary, but could easily be converted to concentrated horticulture.
The house will need work done on it but is probably better than mine and has character but that means more $$$
so it has a wow factor for a small group of folk! or those wanting to pick it up for peanuts, putting $30k into it and then selling it for $60plus more.
Mikes passing was a most complicated and nasty time for all concerned of which our health system needs to take some of the blame. AND if that had been more organised then Hestia wouldnt be in the mess she is now.
My job brings me into contact with others in the same boat, so lessons are not learnt or systems changed.
I can donate the next sun 18th if there are others that can come chainsaw,and a woody working bee.. I think I can get my splitter onto the trailer by myself and can sit and split [not spit] on the sun morn..

sod, quite near Te Aroha so a long way from Auckland and Hamilton, and moderately difficult to find tenants I would think.

I dont know what it is called,,
the contract they signed last year ws that they were to buy my house for a certain price IF their own houls sold before 15th of jamuary,,it didnt so they asked to extend that date,,which I said ok to and the next date came and went and same procedure.
It says that I can sell IF I get a cash buyer but they have a week to cough up the money IF a cash buyer.
Been told this is the normal procedure.
When next date comes up I grab another real estate.
(I think the real estate I have now stop advertising when they get someone sign a contract even though it is a future date,I am so depressed and get nothing done so I have not even checked if there still are ads in the newspapers)
In europe you get bridging finance and that makes the sales go thru faster,,no one hangs around and the next buyer comes in fast.,,domino effect,which makes their market faster.
If any of you want to come out in a weekend then I light he BBQ.
I have big chunks of lamb in the freezer and I dont do any meals anymore.

May I suggest to speak with another Agent this week regardless of date on the sales contract, get them to look through the property, get an opinion on where they see it in the market as far as value goes, and then if you are comfortable with them, tell them about the current real estate agreement with the current agent and see what they suggest? They will know immediately what they are legally and ethically allowed to do.... which might give you some additional choices and 2 agents working hard to sell your home for the commission.

I am all for multilisting after the first 4 weeks. In our case with the village house we have sold it through TM, but gave the option to 2 local agents we come into contact with and didn't want to show preference for one over the other.
One happily signed up the house with my condition that if I sold it privately, there would be no fee payable to the Agent etc and this has worked out, everyone honouring the signed agreement.

My signing Agent also changed the photos about in the newspaper each week and kept it in the paper as she felt it fitted current market enquiries, so they were happy to promote it.

Sadly the other Agent couldn't get her principals to agree to my conditions, did bring some interest through but not as much as she could have, had she been able to advertise via the agency. but the offer to sell was out there for her all the same.

sometimes people get a bee in their bonnets about certain agencies from bad experiences (as well as Agents) and perhaps this might be working against you too.

good luck!

Hestia, I am worried about you. You sound so down compared to last November when we were all talking about painting and wallpapering your place to get it ready to go on the market. Have you talked to your doctor about how alone you are feeling? There may be a support group in your area for people who have lost loved ones? Sometimes depression can be a vicious downward cycle, the more down you get, the less people know how to talk to you, and then the more down you get...

The 18th would work for me for a wood-splitting bee, if homebirther's hubby can't manage the lot! :-) I could also bring our woodsplitter over and help get some done.

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

Kaybe, I am down, I am totally isolated. I have not slept one full night in more than a year. I have seen the doctor to get anti depressants to sleep but it doesnt work.
I could sit and talk about this in support groups,,but it doesnt help. I know the reason for why I am like this or rather feel like this.It is strictly that all his family left him when he fell sick and I have not had any support neither thru his sickness or when he has gone. Support in this case is that you should always have a family and friends to fall back on,,but I can't fall back on them since they are not here. I am aware of why I am down,,but I cant do anything about it.
I should be busy with my family, my father would had stayed with me, my kids and my grandkids would hade stayed with me and I would have had friends that would stay with me,,they would had been with me so often so I would had loved them to go home,,lol,,

Oooh, I almost forgot. when hubbie fell sick I did contact cancer society in my home land, They gave me the name of a female in same situation as I. She was was also maried to a man diagnosed with same form of cancer, We have been mailing each other for 2 years, comparing the care and the medication and results and reports.
Her husband died wednesday last week.
I did pick up the phone and called her for the first time.
What a difference it has been ther our "expereince" in totally everything.
They had family, his and hers.
Neighbours, the whole village, his work, her work, home nurses that came and did do his madication every day.
A hospital that did refer to pain clinic and used all available methods.

My hubbie was one of few that do not get pain to go away with amfetamin and morfine,,a few percentage does not answer to this.
There was is a pain clinic at the hospital and the GP, surgeon, cancer specialists and palliative people did NOT refer this or even mention it!
I did find out by acident and demanded him to be sent there..I was told..I was told,,not to interfer!
They preferd to have him screaming in pain at home with me as only "nurse"
(ther was no que at the pain clinic, they took him in but too late, he should had been referd there months earlier and they could had made him totally pain free!!)
I was told to leave him at hospital so they were to experiment and try to dose some of the medication up and some down.
His medication had to be given even every second-third hour, it was a tight schedule.
He called me and told screaming over the phone that his 8 oclock medication had not showed up at 8.30,he had rang the bell over and over again,, I had to call the hospital to tell to go oin and give him his pain killers!!
I was even at the hospital and he was in a room with no toilette and the toilette wa 30 ,meters away and he could not walk, he was given a portaloo thing in his room and no one had adjusted it so he could even get up on it.
I sat there when he had medication time,, I had his medication in my handbag,,but I am NOT to medicate when at the hopsital. His medication did not come and he rang the bell and nurses that told they did not have key to medication locker came,,medication was like 30-40 minutes later than schedule. I promised him, never a hospital again.
I was critisized for havinghim at home,what if he did fall on the floor and die!! eeh!?
No one even came when he rang the bell! I could be home within 15 min if he rang me on the cellphone.
This struggle.,. it was just him and me. no support whatsoever!

Rotary in another district contacted me and aid they had alerted rotary where we live,,MP contacted rotary, a private person contacted rotary - nothing hapened.
I heard that there was to be a buzy bee work on its way at my work,,never happened.
A collegaue of mine offer help to come and clean out the house and pack things,,and then told 15 dollars an hour.
and worst of all,,his sibblings told me to contact cancer society and they would help!! yeah a rain of phampletts telling that I as caregiver should look after myself and they the help given,,eeeh?
His sibblings did check themselves and said: ooh we thought theer was help to get,,but they never ever came to even sit one night with him so I could sleep.
He had a very sad family, friends, collegaues,,,,,,,,

While he still was alive he sat in a lazy boy infront of the tv with closed eyes since he was in such pain,,floating in and out of dreanland,,he said,,darling,,buy a fake tv camera and spread the rumour that we are to have a mucking in tv program here,,and then he laughed,,he kept his humour all the way. He begged me to forgive him for leaving me alone in this country with no support.
He did talk with the dog while I was listening: make sure mum sells and leaves and finds another man!
(his wording I can not write since it was hilarious and a bit naughty,,loved that man!)

Hestia, I am absolutely appalled that you had such a bad experience with the so called "care" in this country. Most kiwis would consider themselves very caring, yet here a whole raft of organisations have let you down when they were most needed, and it makes me feel ashamed of those people.

I trust your "working bee" day on the wood, will be a happy time for you, with people who do care.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

We are in the elstow area , so it is no problem as we are close .
If we can help , please let me know and we can arrange a day .
I would not like to think of you on these cold waikato days with out wood to burn to keep yourself warm .... Besides I think my husband is part beaver :) he loves doing fire wood ...
