Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations: December 2018

Second Chances Are Rare

stop and go!While our local real estate market may be in the winter slowdown, there are still new homes coming on the market and there IS interest when they do.  With an overall shortage of offerings, the homes remaining for sale weeks later usually have an issue hindering their sale (floor plan, condition, price, etc.).

So when a new condo or home comes on the market, chances are there are some buyers waiting to see a new opportunity to satisfy their home needs.  And if the new offering is a well presented, there's a good chance it will go under contract quickly.

It's a snooze, you lose kind of market for the best of the best homes.

So if you thought about it just a bit too long, or didn't present a strong enough offer to get the home, is there still a second chance?

Honestly, that's a rare occurrence.  MOST deals stick from contract to closing table.  However, there are a few things that can derail that contract:

  • Inspection issues significant enough that the buyer exits the deal
  • Buyer financing falls through or appraisal doesn't meet contract price
  • Buyer gets cold feet (or something better comes along)


If one of these things happens the home MAY come back to Active status (if there isn't an already accepted back up offer).

If the home returns to the market, it's critical to act quickly.  There may be other buyers who missed their chance the first time and are hoping for the same as you, a second chance.

What If You Had To Sell Your Home Tomorrow?
