Thank you for the additional information. The counter-offer which she made, is a new offer and if it was accepted by the buyer, it would be legally binding. In a situation like this, she can contact the buyer and see if they would agree to cancel the contract and walk away. If not, she needs to read the terms and conditions of the contract and see what her potential liability/damages
are, for breaking the contract and not selling. Of course, if the buyer has an issue with the home, she can refuse to make any repairs or accommodate them, if she does not want to and the home is being sold "as is". She can also take a chance and tell the buyer who can no longer sell and will not close and hope that they will just walk away and not pursue any legal action, since this just happened and they may have not suffered any damages.
