Being presented with an offer begins a new cycle of questions, answers, and challenges. The offer you receive may be lower than you had hoped for, or it may have other terms that you find unacceptable. You may have to wait quite awhile, with growing impatience, for the right offer. A buyer may have been back several times, leaving you to assume an offer is forthcoming, but it never shows up. You could also get the right offer sooner than you expect, perhaps before you are really ready to move.
