Customer Question

I placed a real estate offer and my agent told me it was rejected by email. I never got a signed contract back with a rejection initial from the Seller... Should I ask for one ? State of Arizona

Hi Lisa. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Just so there is no question that your offer is no longer standing, I would suggest you send the seller and the seller's agent an email stating that you understand that the seller rejected your offer, but just to be clear that since you received no official rejection from seller, you are withdrawing your offer effective immediately. That will prevent the seller from later signing your offer and claiming there is a binding contract. At any time before seller signs your offer and returns it to you, you are entitled to withdraw it. So, that's what I would do rather than expecting the seller to take any affirmative action.
