In real estate, there is a concept known as the ‘right of first refusal’.  In that concept, a seller who has entered into an agreement with a buyer must offer the buyer the option to amend his offer if a second buyer comes along without a contingency held by the first buyer.  The seller must inform the first buyer who then has the right to amend their contingency to match the second buyer’s offer.  If the first buyer does not agree, the sale then goes to the second buyer and the first buyer is refunded his earnest money. As always, in situations such as this, it is a good idea to consult with a real estate attorney.
