Verbal offer before the formal offer?Realtor says he has given a verbal offer to the listing agent of the property we liked. This property has dropped almost 200k price since it was listed 6 months back. My realtor says, if the seller agrees to the verbal offer, then he can do the paper work. I thought inorder to show the seller that we are serious, we should have give a written offer first...Is this right?November 03 2008 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
