Appointments, deals, and closings get cancelled all the time in real estate. It’s something you get used to (or at least have to learn to deal with) as an agent.

A lot of times, you don’t even get a reason why. So, it’s always nice when you can get a firm answer as to why a client is cancelling. But, it’s even better when the reason you get is so off-the-wall crazy that it becomes a good story you can tell!

We gave our audience a chance to tell us the craziest reasons they’ve been given for a cancellation, and they did not disappoint! Hundreds and hundreds of agents served up some pure entertainment. But rather than having to read through all of them to get to the true nuggets, we compiled a list of the 26 most jaw-dropping ones for you!

Enjoy…

1- Talk about a killer deal…

2- Don’t quit your day job… (Seriously. Don’t.)

3- Not your typical type of home inspector…

A lot of agents chimed in with animal related excuses! The next few are like the real estate version of “the dog ate my homework”…

4- Down boy!

5- Pop goes the wheels…

6- What the actual cluck?!

7- Bad timing…

And even more agents had stories about marriage surprises…

8- I kid you not…

9- I do! I do, I do, I do…

10- A “miner” problem…

11- Tanking the deal…

12- But how do you really feel?

13- What are the odds?!

A couple of agents had some pretty “crappy” reasons for cancellations…

14- I have big butts so I cannot buy…

15- No way without the bidet…

16- I won’t take this lying down…

And a few agents had stories where the houses (and deals) were beyond repair at the last minute…

17- That auto do it…

18- Oops!

Sadly, health concerns can come up while people are in the middle of a real estate transaction. Here’s a few of the crazier stories we saw…

19- Both?!

20 – How old?!

And the rest are just a random array of craziness to round it all out…

21- Put up your dukes…

22- I truly hope this was a lie…

23- Better cancelled than walking in and seeing it…

24- And the boobie prize goes to…
