Top Reasons Why Real Estate Deals Fall Through

one percent real estate

Even when dealing in one percent real estate, some deals do fall through. We are continuing our series of articles discussing some of the most common reasons why a real estate deal goes kaput. Our previous article covered houses not passing an acceptable inspection and the home appraisal coming in under the offer amount. Today, we will look at two more reasons why real estate deals fail.


If the buyer’s mortgage does not get approved, then the real estate deal will likely fall through. Most of the time, buyers will put a contingency in the contract that the deal may be null, and void and the buyer will be refunded the down payment if their funding falls through. But not all is lost. The Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents/South Florida seller agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros encourage sellers to take back-up offers in the event that the original buyers financing falls through.


Unmet contingencies can also cause a real estate deal to fall through. Examples of contingencies include the sale being contingent on the buyers financing as mentioned above or contingent on the sale of the buyer’s current home. Contingencies can also include repairs, i.e., the final sale is contingent upon the seller installing a new roof that passes inspection, etc. The 1% real estate agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros advise both our buyers and sellers on acceptable contingencies.
