Appraisals versus Repairs

A north Florida Housing dilemma

Jacksonville, FL - Its one fear every home seller has.  They agree to do a whole bunch of Jacksonville home repairsrepairs for the buyer, for the home, and then the appraisal comes in short of the agreed upon price.  Now what to do?  The sellers now invested money into the sale and the buyer wont pay the difference.  Does the seller feel as if they need to lower the price now to complete the deal?  What went wrong?

First off, they probably weren't working with a Realtor because if they had they wouldve been advised not to start any of the repairs until the buyer's loan was fully approved without contingencies including the appraisal.  This is spelled out in paragraph 14 of the NEFAR purchase and sale agreement.
