HELP!! Question about making an offer with sellers broker

It''s YOUR offer, Bubba. The only thing the 10% does is indicate seriousness. Realtors, for example, are generally REQUIRED by law to convey all offers to a seller. It won''t kill the broker to take a $1,000 deposit and convey an offer. Time-limiting the period between acceptance and requesting a full 10% deposit would protect the seller. It''s a freaking negotiation, not a cast-in-stone law. Just make sure you cover all contingencies such as interest rate, subject to obtaining financing, survey, etc. Forget asking that the boat value be equated to or exceed the offer by survey. That always seems to happen anyway unless there''s HUGE problems.
