As per contract it states agreed upon repairs shall be done "in a workman like manner".  First off, that is sexist.  Second, that is vague.  I add to the purchase contract that all repairs "Seller agrees to use a licensed contractor for any heating, cooling, mechanical, roof, electrical systems, and/or plumbing requested repairs."  This removes any dispute as to how the repairs will be completed up front on the purchase contract.

Inspection requests and repairs.... And who does the scope of work. Many agents feel they can force the seller to make repairs above and beyond what the Puchase Contract calls for.

In addition to what's already been mentioned  sometimes moe out date is a sticking point here. Our final walk throughs are usally 5 days in advance of closing and sometimes the Seller doesn't want to move than soon.

In this market, buyers have to compromise or give up on home if sellers don't agree.

Where is the 400 lb potted plant that was by the back patio?

Where did the flat screen mounts go?

The neighbor said there is a Buick buried in the back yard.

Just a little levity in face of the obvious.

The ones that seem to be the biggest sticking points are price, repairs and price again if the appraisal fails to come in at value.
