Hi Stephen, thank you so much!
Customer
We are less than 24 hours from closing, and the seller just told us he's backing out because he wants $50-$100k more.

Not a chance.  Not legal.

You can find a highly-rated local lawyer on a lawyer review site like Avvo.com for your city. You can also use https://find.lawyer.com/justanswer.php?1 which will get you a free consultation as well as 25% off legal fees for being a JustAnswer member on Lawyers.com.

I further recommend justia.com for potentially finding a local attorney.

You can also use the local State Bar Association.

There are lots of options to find a good local lawyer.

You can make them sell you home with a Court order.  That is compelling them to complete the deal on the merits.  I am sorry this is happening.  They request is patently absurd.

Customer
