My parents’ house burned down a few weeks ago and they are in immediate need of a new house. My cousin who’s a real estate agent has been showing them houses. They went to look at a house that had a pending sale and fell in love with it. They did not know there was a sale pending at that time. However, the couple that wants the house is leaving the sale pending until they can sell their current house. My cousin is telling them to sign a contract now to pay full price on the house (the original prospective buyers got a discount) and to pay in cash (they’re getting money from the homeowners insurance from the house that burned down to do this). Is it likely they can have this house, or is it more likely they’ll have to look for another one?
