The buyer would generally dictate how long an offer is valid for, its then up to the seller if they wish to accept/reject/counter in that time frame proposed by the buyer. <br/><br/>In the case of a bank owned (foreclosed house), it is not uncommon for it to take a week. In some cases they have predetermined dates by which they will adhere (to see ALL the offers that come in and give opportunity to buyers). <br/><br/>You have done what you want, at this point its out of your control... call your agent,keep communicating each day and wait...<br/><br/>Good Luck!
