Many times you'll never hear any response. Properties are being hit hard with multiple offers right now. The banks are usually only looking at the top 3 offers and disregard all others. Of those 3 top offers, they may hear the YES or NO. All the other offers many times get thrown on a pile and never get any attention what so ever. Usually the REO agents don't take the time to call or e-mail the 20 other offers that weren't strong enough.

Hi Looking,
There definitely is a way to know if that primary offer has fallen through. When you submit your back-up offer, have your agent submit the CAR form P.A.A. This is an addendum to the purchase agreement. There is a space on the second page that contractually indicates that you are back up offer # _______(fill in the blank). We use this when we make offers on properties and also when we accept offers on short sales as so many fall out. It helps everyone to know exactly where they are.
Good luck. I have purchased both of my homes by being the back-up offer! So many escrows fall out these days - it is a smart strategy.
