5pm the next day.
But, let's say the decision maker is in Seatle taking care of busniness and will not be avaialble for another 48 hours. What will you do?
Clearly, you realize this 'time' is merely a required componet that creates a official offer. The reality is, you will accept what ever time is required.
Unrealisticly short time requirements will be viewed as the first volley in the negotiation cycle. An asute seller, with a desirable property in an active market, will advance their negotiation position by ignoring your offer until your timer has expired. Of course, it will be because the decision maker is in Seattle or otherwise inaccessible.
Best of success,
