Certainly a case for presenting your offers in person (if possible).

Our board gives automatic allowance for agents to present to the seller (listing agent present of course), seller must notify in writing otherwise.

The problem you have now is that listing agent has to admit to the seller he was wrong on the price, easier done in person with comps in hand.

You could always withdraw the offer and present another for ten cents more.

Rob, you're right, presenting in person would have made sense. We have an out of town seller in this case, but if I had thought about it a bit more I could have at least presented to him on the phone with his agent present. In the end, it wouldn't have mattered - they were ready to buy something else after not hearing from him for three or four days. But it gave me pause after the fact - I need to consider adjusting my approach each time I make an offer. What's right for one situation might not be right for the other. In the end, we do what we need to do to get our clients the property they want.

Thanks for reading!
