Are you utilizing a Realtor to represent you? Or did you submit it to the Seller's representative?
It is never too late to get a Realtor to represent your interests.
offer he/she is committed to present that offer ASAP, and all agents know TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
as they obviously want to make sure that their clients offer gets to the listing agent of the seller or
the seller himself as soon as possible, now is there often a delay, because the owner is out of town,
or the listing agent does present offers to his client only on the weekends, yes there could be all
kinds of reasons. You MUST contact your agent and ask why it was presented when it was presented,
I am sure there was a good reason, may be your agent had to meet the sellers in person to present
the offer and discuss any details with them...

Other times a property may be under joint ownership and it simply takes longer to contact everyone involved. Some are in Trust ownership and the attorneys live in a universe with a different time clock.
Of course, there is always the prospect they are mocking a 5 hour response requirement that may have been included in the offer to purchase. There is just SOOOOoooo much we do not know.
What we do know is professional standards do compel the real estate professional to present the offer as soon as possible to the owner. The seller may have,, and since none here are the listing agent, an agreement in place between the owner and listing agent to manage purchase offers in a fashion more suitable to the seller/owner. There is just sooooo much we do not, and can not, know. To imply an agent would put a transaction in jeapordy by delaying the presentation is just wrong thinking. There's a lot of that going around.
Have your agent confirm your offer is the only offer in process. This piece of information may allow you to be more trusting of the process.
PS: Currently working with a purchase where owner can respond once weekly. Patience has paid off and progress toward closing is steady and sure.
