Re: House sold before even viewed it

The potential buyer doesnt have to wait for me, they are waiting until the seller has received all bids. If you want the house, you are not going to pull out because you have to wait a few days.

But hey the weird and strange system here is not going to change. Roll on to the next one..
I think that in this particular point, you are mistaken. As others have said, some offers to purchase are made conditional upon being accepted within 24 or 48 hours. This means that not only the buyer, but also the seller has to decide very quickly. The seller doesn't always have the leisure to wait.

To illustrate: the seller makes viewing appointments, one a day, for a week, starting on Monday, and yours is on Friday.

The Monday-viewers make an offer, on the spot, which expires on Wednesday at noon. That gives the seller the chance to let the Tuesday-viewers in, and to see whether they make an offer that is higher (or if they are purchasers that she just prefers). She even has space to squeeze in the Wednesday-viewers if they can be done by 10h, to give her an hour to think, and then to accept or reject one of the offers of the Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday folk. Done! No need for the Thursday and Friday folk to come by.
