Cancelled real estate sale puts buyers in a pickle

Couple seeks recourse after settling for a less desirable home

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

DEAR BOB: Last fall my husband and I moved from out-of-state and purchased a home. The sellers accepted our offer with no contingencies. All the papers were signed; we even had the movers all arranged. A week later, our Realtor called to say the sellers “changed their minds.” Since we had already accepted a good offer on our old house and had to move, this put us in an extremely stressful situation. We ended up making another trip to the area and purchasing another home, which we don’t like as well.
