Accepted Offer, well kind of, depending on things and the seller!
Just because an offer is accepted, does not mean that the sellers have stop trying to sell their property.
No deal is officially done until escrow is closed, the seller gets paid and the keys are given to the buyer.
Until all contingencies (buyer qualifying for a loan, seller fixing the roof etc.) on a contract are removed, anything can happen, causing the seller or buyer to cancel escrow.
Some real estate agents will even include a “kick-out” clause in their contracts. The clause says that although the buyer is currently under contract, the seller is allowed to kick out the buyer if a better offer comes along during the contract period. I believe this is unfair for the current buyer and most buyers may not know this clause exists in their contract.
If you have a real estate question, ask me.
