can sellers get cold feet and back out?
We are dealing with somewhat crazy sellers--it's three sisters selling their childhood home, so there are a lot of emotions at play. I guess one of the sisters has remorse for selling to us because they think they should have gotten a lot more for the house (NOT true--it needs a new furnace, new roof, all new cosmetic updating, etc, to even begin to approach a higher price...in fact, I think we paid more for the house than it was really worth, but it's been a long, rough housebuying ride and we love this place). This one sister said some obnoxious things to her agent, who passed them on to our realtor who in turn told us.
We are a week from closing EXACTLY--as in, we will either just be finishing or in the middle of it all exactly one week from right now.
Can they back out? I just need to know whether to be afraid. I'm not sure why their realtor told ours about this, except that she seems to like drama. ;)
