Real Estate Q. I have a buyer with a contingency for the closing of their other property out of state Their out of state property had a delay and is now closing a couple of days after our expiration of our contingency. We still have a few days padding on their purchase in Texas so I am not needing to extend that closing, but concerned about our expiration of our contingency that would automatically cancel our contract if we haven't waived the contingency. Buyer is prepared to go ahead and waive that contingency and deposit the additional earnest $, but I am trying to figure out what form to use to provide the waiver notification. Every form I am aware of to waive the contingency is used when there is back-up offer in place and buyer chooses to waive vs loosing the house after providing notification of the back-up offer by the seller. Also, if we were to ask for an extension vs waiving, what form would we use for the extension? Thanks!

Real Estate Q. Option Check! Looking for data on required procedures in relation to sellers agent requirement in forwarding the accepted option fee check to their client, the seller. Have agency that voids the check after expiration of option period and request the option be removed from HUD or have buyer write another check. Cannot find any language that sellers agent must deliver the option check. Cannot assume common sense would prevail. How should this be resolved?

Real Estate Q. Hello! Do farming postcards attract attention to sellers? I am new to the business but found a few good direct mailing companies that have some really good deals and was wondering if postcards would get me some attention. If they do work how often do you suggest mailing them out? I have a FB page but only have 20 friends or so and none of those people are even close to buying houses so FB is not really helping me out that much.
