I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
The statute of limitations in North Carolina for breach of contract is unfortunately only 3 years. If you filed a lawsuit and the case was dismissed for being outside the statute, the only thing you could do is appeal. However, there are two problems with that:
The best option at this point may be to try to list the house for an additional $3,500 to help offset your losses. There just isn't a law that lets you sue someone after the statute of limitations has epired, or a law that would allow suing someone for the same thing a second time after a first case was dismissed.
