There’s an article over on Inman Select that has real estate agents discussing the many different reasons why they have had a sale get so close to being finalized, but at the last minute something happens and the deal gets called off.
A few of them stand as cautionary tales that could happen to any deal, but there are a few that just seem to come out of nowhere. The newlyweds that returned from their honeymoon only to annul their marriage and cancel the house offer or the buyers who let their kids have a tremendous amount of input on the decision are just two examples, but there are plenty more to read through.
Have you ever had a frustrating last-minute deal breaker? Let us know about it in the comments.
