Hi B, have your Realtor ask the listing agent. Or ask the listing agent.

Your agent can look up to see if th ehome was pending and then came back on teh market. You can certainly ask the listing agent if there are any offers, it will be up to the instructions they were given by the seller though if they can answer you.

Hi B -

If the offer was logged in MLS and the property was under contract in MLS, yes we can look that up. Any changes made to a listing during its history are logged with the date. Message me the address and I'll check for you.

B,

Since this request is of a personal nature and is not public information whether or not you can access this information is inclear....but one never knows what the out come will be until they ask. Request your agent to have a conversation with the listing agent about this...you just neer know!

Good luck,

Bill

No, you can not determine if a previous offer was presented.
Your agent MAY be able to ask the listing agent if a previous offer was ACCEPTED.
Your agent MAY be able to ask the listing agent why the previous offer failed.
-
A home seller and the professional representing them, would find a buyers need of this information to be irrelevant and therefore abstain from contributing to confusing a potential further.
-
It is also reasonable to assume such an inquiry, and the subsequent response, is an attempt to gain advantage by the buyer. When a seller starts making concessions, or negotiating with themselves, even before an offer is presented the predictable outcome is another seller beat-down. My guidance to sellers is NO conversation is merited until a offer is on the table. Then the first one to say 'NO' the American way, wins.

Dear B,

You may or may not be able to find out if there were a previous offer. If there were, and the offer were accepted, then there could be a way to find that in the MLS (but not the details of the accepted offer.)

If there were an offer, but it was not agreed to by the buyer and the seller, you may not be able to find out unless the seller has given his/her listing agent express permission to share that information.

Ask your buyer's agent what he/she can find out for you!

Good luck!

Sincerely,

B,

You probably won't be able to find if there was a previous "offer" on the home you are considering purchasing - unless the listing agent divulged this information to you. It's doubtful the list agent would offer this information freely to you - as it is really no benefit to them.

Unless the MLS in your area is set up differently - you won't find any information on "offers" that have simply been submitted. The only information you will find is the final selling price after the transaction has closed.

Hope this helps.
