CaseCast™ – "What you need to know"
Smiths contend that the dealings between them and Behee ripened into a contract and entitled the Smiths to the balance of $4,002.50 and that the trial court erred in ruling otherwise. After Behee, as prospective buyer, and the Smiths, as prospective sellers, had engaged in unproductive negotiations, Behee, on March 2, 1987, made a written offer of $42,500 for the real estate and on March 3, that offer was mailed to the Smiths. On March 4, the Smiths signed the proposed agreement in Mississippi. Before Behee was notified that the Smiths had accepted the offer, Behee withdrew the offer by notifying the agent of the Smiths. Plaintiff Steve L. Hendricks then brought an action against defendants, alleging that there was a valid contract.
