Great advice but query the quoted part above.
I know some brokers insist on offers in writing (I had one require the offer in writing in a form constituting the Sale Agreement which the Seller could accept whereupon it became binding), but there is no reason, here at least, a Buyer cannot make an oral offer. I`ve made offers by email, no deposit no contract, and made one of the conditions of the offer "Subject to Contract in an acceptable form",so I`m not bound until there is a formal Agreement.

Good point. I'm just more used to written offers. In my limited experience, someone making a verbal offer to see if it is accepted generally is a perspective buyer just trying to get a new "selling price" that he can bargain down from . . . Maybe I'm just to cynical!
