Did you have a finance addendum which states if your lender is unwilling to give you the money you can cancel the purchase agreement and get your earnest money returned?

If you are within the contractually allowed period where you can exercise your finance addendum, it appears that you should be able to exit the contract and receive your earnest money. Before requesting that the contract be voided, talk to either your real estate agent (if you have one) or speak to an attorney. They can go through the contract to ensure you are within your contractual rights to exit the purchase agreement.

In many cases if the appraisal comes back as being less than the agreed upon purchase price you have several choices. 1) Accept the appraisal and over pay for the property. 2) Call for another appraisal. 3) Re-negotiate the purchase. If you can't re-negotiate an agreeable price then the deal is usually terminated and the earnest money is returned to the buyer. Bottom line is have a conversation with your realtor and let them know what you want to happen.

Best of Luck
