Never count your capons before they have cleared their calcium-hardened enclosures.

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

The property never made it on the market.  Word got out, and a couple of buyers saw it, we had two offers... and chose one.  Woo (and also) hoo!  A good offer, we accept.

Inspection was done, with a good inspector... (thorough, but not known to panic buyers)... all is well with the world.

Until it isn't.  Buyer pulls out, cold feet.  We approach 2nd buyer.  2nd buyer has purhased something else, in the interim.

And here we stand, holding our ... ahem... empty contracts in our hands.

Back to the drawing board, eh?  Lookout market, here we come.

Well, the good thing is, this will look like a brand new listing since it was never on the market the first time. And there is obviously interest. Go get 'em!

Good luck with it, Alan. Question: do your contracts allow buyers to back out without the cancellation being tied to a contingency?

Morning Alan.

What can I say, it happens, just like other things. It's just a part of this thing we call life.

So does this mean there will be a 3rd cancellation before the true buyer sticks with it?
