REASONS A SIGNED, ACCEPTED OFFER MAY FALL THROUGH?Our offer yesterday for our DREAM HOME was not accepted and another buyer's offer was. We were led to believe that it was not due to numbers but to the fact that we had two contingencies: a septic and home inspection. We are fairly certain that the septic would not pass.Could this deal fall through because the buyer would have to, in all probability, replace the septic? Could the buyer's lender "back out" because of the high probability of having to finance upwards to $20,000 for the project.To further complicate matters, (hope you like a challenge folks!) the new buyer would have to get permission from another property owner for an easement in order to run the city sewer line to the home.The buyers have yet to get this permission and it may take a while to do so...thus stalling a deal that I know the owner is very motivated to complete.THANK YOU for your advice!! I am holding out hope...or maybe I should just throw in the towel!?...the crying towel.- adaJuly 08 2010 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
