Let me ask YOU a question. Let's say you applied to a company for a job 500 miles away that paid $20,000 per year more than your current job that you have been in for over 5 yrs. This new company offers to pay all your closing and moving costs and will also give you a sign-on bonus of $10,000.
Would you quit your current job without getting the new offer in writing?
I rest my case!

I've had agents I know accept a verbal from a buddy of there's only to fine out the deal doesn't materialize and they've told another offer to kiss off. Seller's get real angry when you do that! As Deb stated at the beginning of the thread, since the days of the Magna Carta, get both parties signatures on the deal then you can call it acceptance of the contract.
You bring me an offer with no signature I'm going to throw it right back at you. It's the same B.S. when an agent accepts "per telephone conversaion". You'd better look real nice in a suit when you appear in front of the judge!
so to answer your question, yes your bid can be presented without a signature...it is up to the listing agent as to whether they insist on it or not. It can always be faxed over later.
