Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Did the buyer breach or what , some more information here please, thanks.
So here if the sale was contingent on financing and they made a good faith effort and were denied you will have to likely refund all the earnest money.You can offer say half and see if they agree but unless the contract said this was non refundable they likely get it back.I understand you had expenses but here if they made good faith application they complied with terms of sales contact and you have to refund their earnest money.I would offer to settle for half and see if they will take it to avoid dispute.This gives you something for your trouble.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again, sorry it didn't work out.
If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
