Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Florida

My 85 year old father won an auction for a house in Florida. He is probably incompetent and shouldn't have been bidding. My father foolishly told the Realtor how much he was willing to bid, and that is exactly were the other bids stopped, which is very "fishy". The Auctioneer and Realtor also "baited" him by telling him they could close very quickly, which is what he wanted. After he won the auction and signed the contract, they said they will close by what it is written in the contract, not what they led him to believe. My father lives in a different state than the auction. Is there any way he can get out of this contract? Thank you in advance!

The contract he signed controls. Have it reviewed by an attorney.
