Thanks for your question.
When everything is honestly disclosed up front, you eliminate many possibilities of anyone cancelling.
There are a number of reasons why a Buyer would cancel:
Dissatisfied Inspection or inability for buyer and seller to come to agreement on repairs
Review of Seller Disclosures presents information that dissatisfies the buyer
Review of CIC Resale Package presents information that dissatisfies the buyer
There are also a number of reasons why a seller would cancel a deal:
Low appraisal (not willing to reduce the price)
Inability to come to agreement on repairs after a buyer's inspection
Seller is attempting a short sale and they do not qualify
Seller is attempting a short sale and a lien holder takes title before short sale is complete
Seller changes their mind... could be based on life changing events (e.g., that job they are getting in another state just fell through)
Perhaps the seller is purchasing a property and the sale falls through or the become inelligble to purchase and decide they can't move...
Seller passes away
And I'm sure there are so many other reasons on either the buyer or seller side. Honesty and up-front disclosure are the best policies.
