Even though Connie (below) is not a WI agent, she gives a great, general, conversational overview of how deadlines work in contract.

so I am going to jump in and make an assumption about your question.
if you are saying the seller had 5 days but they took longer.

The point of that 5 days is not some deadline to hold them accountable to as much as to say ....this is how long I will wait for an answer before I go on my merry way looking at something else.

If they reply on day 6, it's possible that you went on  your merry way and found another house and have given up - so sad for them that they were not timely, however if they replied on day 6 and you were still interested - then draw up the papers (new papers with new dates). 

it's not a valid contract if they accepted after the deadline passed but that doesn't mean you can't have one.  simply agree to the terms with new dates and move on.  If you don't want to agree to the terms with a new date, then move on to another house.

If you can reply and verify if this was even close to your question or not, and then restate your question then we can provide better responses.  This is not advise it is an explanation of dates and how contracts work etc.

It seems you are asking a question on a specific contract. State law forbids giving advise on a contract you are not a party to. It is also illegal for Real Estate agents to dispense legal advise. Your best bet is contact your Real Estate Agent. You can also call their Broker. If you still have questions, you can contact your attorney. Its a simple answer --- you just gotta go through the right channels.
