If you're referring to an offer submitted where you set an expiration for that that offer, it may not mean much at all that it expired. When it comes to offers submitted with a private owner, the dates in the contract, including the expiration, are crucial.
However, dates in a purchase offer when submitted to a bank, mean virtually nothing. This is because with banks, the home is merely one of thousands of properties that this particular bank is handling within a particular region or nationwide. They basically get bak to you at their leisure.
Can you provide more details on your situation?

A Short sale is a different situation...
The bank generally has a "dated" bid period where they allow all bids to come in from "owner -occupancy buyers" first. They use that 3 weeks or so to collect and review all of those bids. If they are not happy with any of them, they won't select one and they will extend the time frame for accepting bids. If yours expired and the property is still listed, that could be exactly what happened. They don't take the highest bidder. They weigh it all out, the type of loan, whether it's cash, and any other factor that the buyer might be asking for. You can always bid again.
