If you are in negotiations with another agent/client you want to make it that they have time to respond but not too much time that you leave other potential buyers moving on to other properties.
Hope that helps sellers and buyers out there. Remember it is very important to have open communication between all parties and every transaction ends with a win-win.

If you like the offer and want them to make up their mind quickly, give them a short period of time
and let them know, otherwise sometimes husbands are on biz trips etc., just decide by situation.
If you are working with a Realtor he or she will advise you.....
If you think this should be a good counter, the buyer may not accept but counter your offer again.
So give them only a reasonable amount of time one day or 2 at the most, so that there is not
enough time to see other properties and fluctuate and may be change their mind. That is why
Realtors always think that time is of the essence, so that decisions can be finalized in writing.
Good luck to you
I hope this helps...

While demand in our market has increased, this time of year things are generally slow. Also, if the buyers are out of town or traveling they may need a longer response time. This is something you should discuss with your agent.
