I would like to know who to contact if a buyer signed a contract to purchase my home and gave an earnest money deposit of $1,000 to the agent and the buyer failed to close on the property for unknown reasons (I have the documentation that he was approved for the loan). I would like the deposit released to me and I have been in contact with the agent who has sent a certified letter with a Release of Obligation (returned receipt) to the buyer. The buyer has not responded. I sent a letter with all documentation to the Maryland Real Estate Commission but their response was that they have no jurisdiction in this type of complaint.

Editor: That is exactly what the County Council is doing when they try to change the zoning in the middle of owners who are complying with the law. I do not have an opinion one way or the other in regards to Walmart; however I do not like the fact that private property rights are being trampled on. When a piece of property is zoned for a use and the owner is using the property that it is zoned for, why does the Council feel a need to change it...

Is it wise to buy a FSBO?FSBO is shorthand for "For Sale By Owner." A FSBO property is one that's offered for sale by sellers who aren't represented by a real estate broker.There are several reasons why sellers might choose to sell their home without a real estate broker. They may have had a horrible experience with the last broker they worked with. More common are FSBO sellers who are selling in order to save themselves the cost of a real estate commission.The number of FSBOs on the market tends to increase during a seller's market.
