The bank looks at price and terms. They will often take a lower price for no contingincies such as no inspection and also for a quick closing. Did you have any contingincies? The other offer may not have. Are you looking to buy in NH?

Please see my tips and advice on how to get your offer approved when buying bank owned properties.

There's more to an offer than price. If the other deal was a cash deal, it would make sense for them to take a lower price. Closing date is also a factor, as is your loan capabilities. Further, banks are sticklers for offer paperwork. If your offer was filled out improperly, they won't consider it.

Maybe, but probably not. It's possible that the other offer had been submitted first, and the bank wasn't taking any other offers. However, ask your friend to poke around a little and see if he can figure out what was going on.
