Thanks for the clarification.
Now that I know you are being represented by a Realtor, and there are no problems , I will defer to him or her, and suggest you follow their advice.. I am sure they will guide you in the proper next step to take. Getting advice from strangers on the internet might only serve to confuse you if it varies at all from what your agent is suggesting.
Since none of us know the specifics of your offer or the exact circumstances, we really can't, or shouldn't , comment further (at least that's my opinion), as I would not want to interfere in your ongoing business relationship with your agent.
From what you said, it appears the 72 hours are not yet up. I hope things will move along, and you're able to reach a satisfactory result. I wish you good luck in buying this home!
Please let us know what happens!

Are you dealing directly with the seller? Is this a foreclosure or a short sale?
If you are working with an agent....can't they find out what is happening, and why there has been no response thus far?
Have you given a written offer or was it just verbal?
No response from the seller probably indicates no interest in your offer....but if there is a signed contract floating around out there with your name on it, you should at least get it back.
If your offer to purchase did not have an expiration date attached, then your offer remains "live" until you withdraw it.
