When I started in the industry in the early 90s fax was the main way we sent and negotiated offers. Then email took over in the late 90s and has been the go to method since then. But now I am seeing platforms like MLS Offers becoming very popular in my market. A lot of list agents are requiring offers be sent to them through this system. Our broker actually just recommended we start using that system too. It looks easy and seems to make sense to have a system just for negotiating offers considering I use email for so may other purposes and my inbox can get unorganized.

I'm curious if anyone else is using this system yet and if you think this is the next accepted norm for offer communication between agents? If you haven't seen it yet its MLS Offers.

Don't you want to project that the 1st Offer is also the Highest and Best Offer; the FINAL Offer ?

Why start out being so tentative, testing the water and, suggesting it is subject to improvement ?

Your Thread Title and the implication that your Offer IS NOT going to be accepted as submitted; but rather, it presumes that it will just serve as a starting point to commence "negotiating" is what I am referring to.

Hah, I don't think email can ever really change to some other platform. How else would people receive messages? 90's, 2000's, 2010's. Now we have fb messenger, and a few other platforms, but email is still at the heart of all of our company's communication.

Just what we need. Another service to sign up for that does something we already do every day. Why not make racebook.com. a place where you can go and be friends with other people who are into racing of any type...cars...horses...bikes etc.... You will be able to invite people and send messages etc.....

We have now Skype, messenger, whats-app and many other platforms to communicate officially, but email is still at the heart of all of our company's communication.

My first offer is always on a Texas Real Estate Form, digitally signed or inked, and either emailed or hand delivered. After that if there is a great distance between agents and clients, and we are comfortable with the agent we are dealing with, email can handle some in between counters. Once the final number is reached an amendment can be used or line out the numbers on the contract for initials.

Email is preferred over verbal for a trail. Sometimes I know the other agent so well that verbal is OK between agents. I typically insist on an email or text from my client with a counter, for the trail.
