If you find a home you love and it is already under contract, you can enter a backup offer. If the seller accepts your offer as a backup and the first sale fails, the seller automatically proceeds with you and your offer. Sales fall through all the time, so backup offers are actually a great idea if you love a home that is under contract. When your offer is in backup position, you are still free to continue shopping for and making offers on other homes. It’s a win-win!

Are you ready to buy the home of your dreams?
