Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

If you have agreed verbally or in writing to the sale, or received an offer at the advertised price, you are legally committed to selling. Now if all was done verbally, the buyer may have trouble proving that you agreed to the sale... If he can though, he can sue you for damages and/or have the sale ordered by a court.
