Yes, the listing broker should let you know whatever the owner's response to your offer is, whether it is accepted, rejected, countered or the owner chooses to not even respond. Gail is correct when she suggests working with a buyer's agent. They will provide you with information you need to make good decisions regarding your purchase and work in your interest to get the best deal.

She should be letting you know of all or any responses. How long has it been since you submitted an offer?
It is always good to engage a Realtor to be your buyer's representative. It does not cost you anything and may save you a great deal.

If you gave an offer to the agent, it doesn't matter if it is a listing agent or
another agent, there should be some kind of response in 24 hours.
Whether it is accepted, rejected, or there is a counteroffer.
it might be that the house is in foreclosure or is a short sale, then you have
an bank/institution that you are dealing with and it probably will take longer.

Over the last 26 years the industry has made changes that allow us to work for (only for) a buyer. Prior to 1994, real estate agents always worked for the seller, even when they had their brother in the car looking at homes.
With buyerâ€™s agency we now can work for you, to ensure you purchase the best home at the best price. As a buyer agent, my total responsibility is to you! This means agents have to be very careful in how they handle information, what they say to agents that could hurt your position and to focus their attention to what you need.
The commission is always paid for by the seller even if the home is being sold by a builder. Having a buyer agent working for you should never cost you a penny! And yes we work as buyer agents.
