The rule is "first come, first served".
Some lenders have special addenda that stipulate that offers can be received and allowed to supersede the earlier offers, although these are primarily for short sales.
A sharp Realtor will be looking for back up offers, so I would try to get your offer accepted on that basis. What does your Realtor say?
