Two biggies lately are:  1. inspections (major issues vs major expectations for minor issues)   2.   buyers not being fully engaged in the process or respecting the process that has to unfold before they're given the keys.  Seems no amount of education is helping them.

I keep getting clients who want to attempt to renegotiate terms, such as asking for repairs or credits on an as-is deal.  We agree on terms at the beginning for a reason, but this fact is often lost on clients.

Connie Talcott Smith - well, lots of things can go wrong.

From buyer's side - no mortgage commitment for several reasons including appraisal or financial status change.

From Seller's side - something may happen with the house - and they can't deliver the way it was presented to the buyers.
