As the common phrase goes, we all make mistakes. Some mistakes are costlier than others, especially when it comes to buying a house.

As a real estate agent, you’ve probably witnessed a handful of deals fall through because of financing mishaps. This week, we’re asking you to tell us about those stories. What happened?

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
