They do not have to prove to you that they have another offer... but if they do, you will lose the deal. I have been able to see the first page of a back up offer to let my clients know that there is such an offer.
I'm sorry that you are having to deal with this issue. It is a seller's market now, and you can get pushed up against a wall if you do not have good representation.

I see where the seller lowered the price in lieu of doing repairs. It would be best if you put that on an addendum to the contract. It is really not suppose to be handled on the BINSR.

Regarding backups, if done correct the backup offers/buyers should have been notified in writing that their offer was not chosen, which could be shown to you, but they donâ€™t have to.
If the repairs are not done; do you NOT want the house?
Are the repairs reasonable and real, or they nit-picking?
Is the deal good enough that you could accept the house and do the repairs yourself?
What difference does it make to your deal, whether there is a Back-Up deal or not?
And, NO, there is no Back-Up CONTRACT: there can only be one CONTRACT at a time.
Only YOU can answer this.
Good luck and may God bless
They do not have to prove any offers, just don't have to accept your terms.
