An agent in a bit of confusion yesterday left a voice mail to ask how a seller can refuse to accept their counter offer after the buyer signed it and sent it back. Like with anything in Sacramento real estate, the devil is in the details. It all depends on how the acceptance came together. When the counter was delivered and whether receipt confirmed.
How did the refusal to accept a counter offer occur? Is the home still on the market or did the agent cancel the listing? There are all sorts of variances that make a difference in this type of situation. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Can a Seller Withdraw a Counter Offer Before its Deadline?
