You have three offers on a listing. And even hough they’re of similar value, the seller has agreed to accept the third offer. The broker who represents the buyer whose offer arrived first is claiming your seller had an obligation to negotiate with his buyer because his offer was first. Is this true?
ANSWER: No. There is no Florida law that requires a seller to respond to any offer. Additionally, there is no Florida law that requires the seller to negotiate with each buyer in the order in which the offers are received.
