Consider the below hypothetical scenario and answer the questions that follow.
Hypothetical Scenario Sydney lives in Los Angeles.

Big Apple. Sydney puts her home on the market to sell.
On April 1st, Beatrice the Buyer enters into a contract with Sydney the Seller to buy Sydney’s house.
The deal is set to close (become final) on April 30th and Beatrice is set to receive the keys to her new home on that day.
Beatrice’s first priority when looking for a new house was to find a house close to her elderly mother so she could easily check on her every day.
Beatrice feels Sydney’s house is perfect for her because it is located right next door to the home of Beatrice’s mother.
On April 5th, Beatrice spends $10,000 to have Sydney’s home professionally inspected so she can identify any potential defects or things that need to be fixed.
On April 10th, Beatrice hires a moving/storage company for $10,000
and the company begins to pack up Beatrice’s current house (which is being sold).
Unfortunately, Sydney learns the job offer in New York fell through and on April 25th, Sydney backs out of the contract with Beatrice. Sydney now wants to keep her house.
