If your offer is rejected and another offer accepted, you can also offer a "back-up" contract. That way, if the first contract does not close, you are next in line to get the home, without competing with multiple offers again. The "back-up" contract must be negotiated just like the original offer and fully executed. Therefore, you will need to offer the seller something that you did not offer the first time, like higher price or better terms.
2. Reduce or eliminate the inspection period
3. Have an earlier closing date
4. Agree to rent/lease back to seller
5. Get a better loan, a conventional with 20% down is more likely to be accepted than a 3.5% FHA.
Ask Questions about why the offer was rejected. Start by asking your agent, they should have a very good idea why. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".

If your offer is rejected there may be nothing you can do (if the house was sold to another individual).
There could be a lot you could do. What is the sellers ultimate goal? You could offer more money, adjust the settlement date to the needs of the seller,do they want to sell it furnised?
There are a lot of questions to ask regarding why they are not accepting your offer. Ask and ye shall find the answer (hopefully).
