Yes, which is why it's good to respond immediately to any counter-offer.
Until the seller has a fully executed accepted offer, they can entertain and accept another offer, even if there is a counter out. Time is of the essence when you are negotiating on a home.
yes, the seller can accept another offer since a counter offer is not binding intill fully executed.
The seller is not obligated to stick with any offer until it is accepted. Counter offers are not binding. The hope is, though, that the seller will either accept your counter offer or allow you a chance to raise your offer if a stronger one comes in. Best of luck!
Yes they can. They do not have to look at offers in order or continue with an offer if a new one is much better (higher and with better terms). If they are considerate, they will give you the opportunity to raise your offer to compete with the new one, but they are not required to. Hopefully your Buyer Agent has a good relationship with the listing agent and can work with them to get answers for you.
Yes they can, it spelled out in the counter offer that the Seller can continue to receive and accept another offer if the counter has not been received as accepted by the Seller or their agent, a Seller can also withdraw the counter made to the first Buyer and make a multiple counter offer to all Buyers
Yes a seller can accept another offer IF he has not accepted any other offer he has received. One at a time which ever that is would be a deal.
It can be accepted as a backup offer. Think of it this way you're only selling one home so you can only except one offer at a time.
As others have mentioned, yes the seller can accept another offer. It comes down to what offer was accepted and acknowledged first which now a days can mean minutes.
The seller is not obligated or has no bonding contract ,unless he has accepted one offer or counter offer.
He may accept a new offer and sign it; as long as he has not acknowledge another one. Agents usually accept backup offers; in case if one fails.
Yes, the seller can withdraw his counter at any time prior to acceptance. Sometimes the form used as a counter allows the seller to Counter multiple buyers and not be bound until he acknowledges one of them.
