Highest & Best Due When?!?

What’s the giveaway that the listing agent who sent the email above Saturday morning is likely a newbie — or, at least, not so experienced handling multiple offers?

The 10 a.m. Sunday deadline.

Given that the Edina home just debuted on the market Friday, that means Buyers (and their agents) would likely have to scramble to see it during the day Saturday — and write an offer Saturday night (last night).

Apparently, that belatedly dawned on the owner and their agent as well: I subsequently received a follow-up email delaying the deadline.
