The decision to sell or not to sell is not always an easy decision. Sometimes it’s only after the you have signed the contract that remorse sets in. Maybe your situation changed or maybe your net proceeds is going to be significantly less than what you thought. If you have changed your mind and no longer want to sell your Spring Texas house, what do you do? Can the buyers make you close if you don’t want to?
You and the buyers entered into a legally binding contract in which you agreed to sell the buyers your house at a defined price and by a defined date. If you decide not to sell your Spring Texas house, you are in DEFAULT of the contract. In section 15 of the real estate contract: “If Seller fails to comply with this contract, Seller will be in default and Buyer may (a) enforce specific performance, seek such other relief as may be provided by law, or both or (b) terminate this contract and received the earnest money, thereby releasing both parties from this contract.”
Bottom line: No matter what your reason for not wanting to sell your house, you entered into a legally binding contract to sell it. If you don’t fulfill your obligation and close, the buyer may or may not sue you for specific performance.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
