Many home owners have expressed concern about the uncertainty of the upcoming election and having a challenging time finding their new home before the put their current one on the market.  The demand for real estate in this popular Intown neighborhood is still very strong — especially for homes under $800K, so hopefully more home owners will feel comfortable in the near future and put their homes on the market!

How can I get out of my real estate contract?

Don’t want to buy the home after all? Wondering how you can get out of your real estate contract? It is possible, but terminating a Purchase & Sale Agreement (i.e. real estate contract) is different in each state and the rights of of the Seller versus Buyer may vary. We are going to explore the different ways both Buyers and Sellers can get out of your real estate contract in Georgia. How Buyers Can Get Out of a Real Estate Contract A large majority of the real estate contracts have several contingencies, meaning that the sale of the property is contingent upon certain situations to happen in order to get to the closing table. As a home buyer in Georgia, you are typically protected by the Due Diligence Period, the Appraisal Contingency and Financing Contingency. If you also need to sell your home, you and your agent may also make an offer that is contingent upon the sale of your current home. Let’s explore each contingency and how it will help you get out of the real estate contract, if needed. 1) Due Diligence Period During the Due Diligence Period you can terminate the contract for ANY REASON here in Georgia. During this period, it is critical that you do the home inspection, negotiate any repairs (if needed), research the neighborhood, schools, commute times any anything else that you need to to ensure that you are 100% comfortable moving forward with the purchase of the home. If you do need to terminate your Purchase & Sales Agreement, you and your Realtor must submit a Termination and Release Agreement before...
