I think perhaps you are understanding "real estate-speak" when I'm not speaking it. What I have been talking about the whole time is what I said in my last post

maybe the best way to describe my experience is to say that in my area nobody want to waste time writing an offer that won't be accepted. If the asking price is $400K and I'm offering $390 - and the seller won't budge, there's no need to go any further with my $390 offer
- there's no reliance on the verbal acceptance or rejection to do anything more than decide whether continue the process which will result in a written agreement.
