Any diligent buyer's agent will be checking the MLS several times a day. Once a property hits the market that meets their cleint's specs they will get in offer in ASAP.
72 hours is not a long time if the property is priced right, in a good location, and in good condition.
If you see something you like, get an offer in ASAP!
In this case if you snooze you will surely loose. :}
Best of luck to you,

Definitely. The market at this time is very competitive. The "good" houses are receiving offers very quickly (possibly on the first day) and more times than not receive multiple offers. We are no longer seeing houses languish on the market for long periods of time, unless, of course, it is overpriced or is not desirable for some reason.
Buyers are likely going to find the process of having an offer accepted very frustrating at this time. Although we are not in a "seller's" market yet, in many ways it is behaving as a "seller's" market rather than the strong "buyer's" market to which many buyers grown to expect.
Best wishes...don't give up.
