“Unconditional Mortgage Commitment:
Are You Sure?”
Sometimes a “sure thing” can come apart at the last minute. In this Tale, we have a buyer who found her dream home and was all ready to purchase. Or so she thought!

But then the bank pulled her fully approved financing and left our buyer scrambling to save her dream home—as well as her $60,000 deposit. In the end, she found a solution, but this could have gone better if she had kept her financing condition on the deal until she was surer of the situation.
