As A Home Seller, How Long Do I Have To Respond To An Offer?

Unless the buyer spells out a specific time frame to respond in their written offer, a home seller can take as long as they want, or simply not respond at all.

However, it is customary and polite for the seller to respond to the buyer within 24-48 hours of receiving the offer. A seller can accept the offer, make a counteroffer, or simply reject the offer altogether. Flat out ignoring a buyer’s offer and offering no response at all should only be considered if the offer was super low. Not replying is considered to be an insult to the seller.
