Unfortunately on your part, the Seller has control until everything is finalized.
Sorry you lost your offer but you probably will find something much better.
Sorry but you were discriminated against very legitimately. The seller had another offer. They decided that it appeared stronger. They have not declared, at least in what you say, that they were discriminating against a protected class.
Five percent down s not a strong offer. On the contrary, it's a weak one.

Even though you feel badly, I think you can feel comforted by the fact that the sellers did NOT dicriminate against you. Hang in there.... yo'll get a home that you want.

The sellers can pick whichever offer they want to. Not all decisions are made strictly on dollar ammounts. If they thought the other buyer gave them a better chance of closing sooner, they may pick the other buyer.They have the right to do so.
I am sorry about losing the home you wanted to buy. I hope you find another to your liking. The very best of luck to you!
