There is no law or NJREC regulation that requires a Seller to sign a form acknowledging receipt of a written offer. Article 1, Standard of Practice 1-7 of our Realtor Code of Ethics places a requirement on the listing Broker as follows: “Upon the written request of a cooperating Broker who submits an offer to the listing Broker, the listing Broker shall provide, as soon as practical, a written affirmation to the cooperating Broker stating that the offer has been submitted to the Seller/Landlord, or a written notification that the Seller/Landlord has waived the obligation to have the offer presented.

Monthly IndicatorsThe U.S. real estate market remains hot ahead of the spring selling season, with existing home sales up 6.7% as of last measure, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. Experts attribute the growth in sales to an uptick in mortgage interest rates, as buyers rushed to lock down their home purchases before rates move higher. Mortgage rates have increased almost a full percentage point since December, with the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage briefly exceeding 4% in February, the highest level since May 2019.
