If an executory contract for the sale of realty is broken by the vendor, the measure of damages is the actual value of the realty, less the contract price.1 It has been said, however, that if the breach is due to a failure of title, the contract being executory only, nominal damages should be given.2 In case of breach by the vendee it has been held that the vendor may, if he pleases, treat the equitable interest as being in the vendee and recover the entire contract price.3
