The real estate professionals responding to you could each and every one, share hours of war stories all sharing the same theme.
All share in common a seller JUST LIKE YOU!
Too often, the seller comes to the realization the first offer was the best offer and wish they could have a do-over. The motivated buyer has already moved into their new home...you know, the home that was competing with yours.
If you have a contract in writing...make it work. If the heavy interest was by design rather than by accident, then this is EXACTLY the outcome you wanted. Consult with the professional you hired. They have the data and skills you need at this moment. Second guessing your agent is not going to be beneficial to you.
Best of success to you,

Hard to saw without knowing the features, condition and orientation of your home in relationship to the most recent sales in your community. Knowing the metrics surrounding your neighborhood including sales, inventory, absorption rate, etc. also are critical as are the terms of the offer and the strength of the buyer. Your motivation is also very important when deciding on if the offer is one you want to accept. While the percentage of list price and the number of showings are factors there are many others that need to be considered and discussed with your agent.
Hope this helps....

Janet, your agent is the best resource on this. They know the area, the terms of your purchase offer, should have an appreciation for your area market activity. Speak with your agent about whether or not a cushion was built into your listing price that would accommodate a price decrease or anticipated lower buyer offer. If this is indeed the case, you may be where you needed to be....Again, your agent is your best resource.
- we can only share war stories and trivial mantras like "the first offer is the best offer" (actually, I just had two listings receive offers for more than the "first " offers the sellers rejected).
Biggest question is........is the offer on the table a number in the expected selling range you discussed with your agent when you came up with the list price?
get a closing and meet yor objectives is what you
want to look for! If that's what you have before you-
do it! If not, that would be the reason to wait.
We can all agree waiting for the' Best Offer" can
can bring consequences!
A time honored perspectives that may
apply : " a bird in the hand is woth... in the bush",
heavy interest and market projections not withstanding!
In short- Selling should be about You- first!
