    My first thought would be to ask the seller to adjust the purchase price. If they refuse, you may have to come in with more money, see what your lender says about the appraisal.

    in case you back out, you will lose your earnest funds deposit. as quickly as you have got rid of the financing contingency, you could not take it back, notwithstanding if the appraisal fails to return a cost sufficient so which you will receive the non-public loan. As a real property broking provider, I continuously incorporate a separate contingency to the tip result that the appraisal could desire to return a cost equivalent to or extra advantageous than the presented value, or the shopper can elect to stroll away. curiously your agent did not gain this.

    No...you need to either have the seller reduce the price of the house by $2,000, or you need to make a bigger down payment (by $2,000), or some combination of both (i.e., reduce price by $1,000 and increase down payment by $1,000).
