When an offer is submitted and before they except the Offer, they can increase the asking price because there is not at the time a binding contract on the property, I understand your concern, the price was not increase while you had a binding contract, a contract is only binding when both parties have agreed on the terms of the contract and have sign the contract. if this is the home you wish to purchase and do not want to go to far over your budget, keep a watch on the property, perhaps the bank may decide to except a lower offer.

My guess is one or more of the offers came in above their asking price. This is not unusual with bank owned homes. If you can't afford it, move onto another house. Chances are the other buyers may bid above the 14k increase - which puts you even further out.
