I had a seller terminate a Contract - a no-no in NC. My buyers used my real estate attorney to recoup 100% of their costs, including attorney fees.

The good news - my buyers found a home that they liked SO much more than the one with the crazy sellers. It was meant to be!

There can be lessons learned in real estate beyond the classroom experience but I feel so much more is gained when we accentuate the positive.  Try it and see how much better life is.

all are interesting.  experience does matter.  try and anticipate the next turn/bump in the road.  Learn the business with an experienced professional.  Keep learning, work hard as if your life depended on it.  It does unless you are here just for the good times and there are small victories but you have to anticipate those too.

in 25 years I have never had a contract dispute.  Clear language in special stips has kept that from happening.  And the GAR contract is very well written.

A seller who refused to return earnest money after a buyer exercised his right to terminate the contract. The issue went to mediation and an incompetent mediator thought it best to split the money. Clearly he never understood the issue. It was resolved in the buyer's favor in arbitration.

Never used mediation again! The cost was a non-refundable burden on each party.

Breach of Contract is a problem. The aggreged party can sue for the deposit money (but they never do, not that I've seen).
