Legal Q&A | Can parties reinstate a terminated contract?

QUESTION: I am a listing agent. One of my listings went under contract. After arranging for a home inspection, the buyers submitted a repair request. The parties went back and forth trying to reach an agreement regarding repairs. When an agreement could not be reached, and before the due diligence period expired, the buyers submitted a notice that they were terminating the contract. Following delivery of that notice, the parties continued talking and were able to reach an agreement regarding repairs. The parties now want to move forward with the transaction. Can they reinstate the terminated contract?
