My Seller’s Prospective Buyer Left Because of Home Inspection

The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.  – Sun Tzu

I had a prospective buyer leave a contract because of the “home inspection”.  What do you do as a seller?  You go on the offensive.  You gain quotes.  Ask contractors their opinion of the situation and understand the situation.

This may be an “out” for the buyer.  Buyers can get cold feet or find something else that catches their eye.  Buyers unfortunately can be fickle and sometimes they are not truly in love with the house and settle.  This makes it hard for sellers to understand; but, it happens.  Just remember that leaving due to a home inspection is not necessarily because of a major issue with the home.  Sometimes, it is an excuse for the buyer to back out because they have cold feet.  Not a nice thought; but, it is a reality especially in this low inventory market.
