When other agents ask me if the seller I represent will accept an offer, that is not a question a listing agent can really answer. I do not know what a seller will take. Not inside my seller's head. Even if the seller had told me he or she will not accept an offer lower than X -- for one thing, unless they autorize me to release this information, that informtion is confidential -- I still would not rely on it. Further, sellers are just like anybody else and capable of changing thoughts based on present circumstances.
There is also the not-so-obvious. Stating a seller will perform in a specifc way that causes a buyer damages when the seller refuses could get a listing agent sued by both parties. So, why is it that some buyer's agents readily and openly make promises that guarantee buyer performance?
