To Joan Patterson. What do you mean when y ou say escrow cannot be opened until Steve's is canceled. Is there a law/Civil code/ Business code?

If there is an existing contract to purchase real estate, we cannot legally enter into another contract for the same property. One can enter into a backup offer which will go into effect if the original contract/escrow is cancelled.

I'm not Joan, but I know you can't have two escrows running concurrently. There can be only one buyer (deal) at a time. It would be helpful if you could provide more details. Perhaps I'm not understanding the question correctly.
