Any chance at all? Other offer accepted even though ours was higher


You could make your offer a backup contract.  Your agent would add a rider or addendum to your contract that states that your contract is contingent on the current contract being void.  You and the sellers would execute your contract with the contingency included.  If the current buyers are unreasonable with the home inspection or if their financing becomes a problem. then the sellers will be happy to allow the first contract to be voided and move forward with your contract.  Good luck!
