Market conditions and real estate deal deadlines

When shopping for a home, one important thing for a prospective buyer to be mindful of is whether it is currently a buyer's market or a seller's market in the region they are looking to buy a home in. Real estate market conditions can impact many things during a house hunt. One is what sorts of offer amounts a buyer will have to put forward in order to reach a sales agreement with a seller. Another is how likely a failure by a buyer to meet a deadline in a real estate deal would be to cause the deal to fall apart. 

When a buyer is in the process of trying to close a real estate deal with a seller, there are generally certain deadlines that are placed on the buyer. When a buyer fails to meet these deadlines, the seller typically has the right to cancel the deal. 

As a recent article on the Orange County Register's website discussed, how likely a seller is to exercise this right in relation to a prospective buyer missing a deadline can be influenced by market conditions. In a buyer's market, a seller may be more hesitant to exercise this right and blow up the deal, out of concern that they might not be able to find another suitable buyer. In seller's market, on the other hand, a seller might be more readily willing to exercise this right, as suitable replacement buyers may be more readily available. 

Whether it is a buyer's market or a seller's market, it can be wise for a prospective home buyer to have an experienced real estate attorney's guidance when working to complete a real estate transaction with a seller. Such lawyers can help prospective home buyers with navigating complications that arise during the course of trying to come to a real estate deal, with understanding how the circumstances surrounding a purchase attempt (including market conditions) could impact the process of trying to come to deal with the seller and with having a clear idea of what sorts of things could potentially endanger a deal.
