Realtor Hans Brings, with Coldwell Banker, said the owner received several offers in the first week and accepted one.
"Unfortunately, the buyer was unable to obtain financing because every lender they contacted said the home was too small to finance," Brings wrote in an email. "The backup buyers had the same issues."
So, the tiny home with an open floorplan, an updated kitchen and a desirable location is back on the market with a new asking price and a new strategy.
Brings said the owner is now hoping to find a cash buyer who can afford to pay $389,900.
According to the listing, the bedroom is a loft with knee-high ceilings. The kitchenette boasts a new granite countertop, and the bathroom was recently remodeled. It is located on a 2,452-square-foot lot.
There is a "ready to finish basement" that might offer a few additional square feet.
According to the Massachusetts Association of Realtors, the median price for single-family homes in the state was $552,000 in August.

Liz Cheney humiliates fellow Republican as she calls him out for falsely claiming to be on the 1/6 committee
Although House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's select committee on the January 6 insurrection is dominated by Democrats, it includes two conservative Republican critics of former President Donald Trump: Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. And on Thursday, as the House moved to hold Steve Bannon in criminal contempt of the committee, Cheney called out Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana for falsely claiming to have be its ranking member.
When Pelosi first formed the committee earlier this year, she stressed that she wanted bipartisan participation. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's recommendations included Banks and Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, both of whom Pelosi rejected. Trump loyalist McCarthy, in response, threw a temper tantrum and told Pelosi that if she wouldn't accept Banks and Jordan, he would order Republicans to avoid the committee. But Cheney made it abundantly clear that she would be glad to help Pelosi with her January 6 committee regardless of what McCarthy had to say.I combined the videos… I’m also curious why Rep. Banks is sending letters lying about his position to Federal Agenc… https://t.co/zxmLorLhR7 — Acyn (@Acyn) 1634843315.0
Playing the fake outrage card during a hearing this week, Banks complained, "Speaker Pelosi vetoed Jim Jordan and I from serving on the select committee to investigate January 6…. It was a shameful and divisive decision with real consequences."
Cheney, however, noted that Banks' complaint contradicted what he said in various official letters, explaining, "The gentleman also said that he is not on the committee. He had noted that the speaker determined that he wouldn't be on the committee. So, I would like to introduce, for the record, a number of letters the gentleman from Indiana has been sending to federal agencies — dated September 16, 2021, for example, signing his name as the ranking member of the committee he has just informed the House that he is not on."
Politico's Olivia Beavers and Axios' Andrew Solender both tweeted a copy of the September 16 letter that Cheney referenced, noting:Confirming @AnnieGrayerCNN — Banks sent letter to Sec.

Addressing Interior Department Secretary Deb Haaland, Banks wrote that McCarthy "appointed me to serve as the Ranking Member of the Select Committee." But Pelosi had final say over the committee, and she didn't want either Banks or Jordan to serve.From Your Site Articles
