Frankly I don't understand why the sellers were starting the extension. And why only for 24 hours at a time.
Doing it that way is a bit of brinksmanship I think.

Maybe they were trying to get quotes on repair work to see if they would be willing to do/pay for the repairs - maybe their agent was trying to keep the negotiation open to close the deal, since often in a case like this sellers get offended and think if they got one offer another will happen right away with someone less picky if they let this buyer go and it's often the agents who want to close the deal more than the seller. Especially if the sellers are motivated to sell by something else, like having already purchased another house.
