Many times we give 24 hours. Sometime there are circumstances where the seller can't respond that quick and we'll adjust accordingly.

It depends on the situation but normally buyers are OK with the default of 3 days but there have been a few exceptions.  In our sellers market I don't think putting a short deadline will not work, unless you have a really outstanding offer

Typically, we don't use deadlines here with offers. I only did it once and the deadline wasn't received well. Apparently it pi$$ed off the seller and they didn't want to negotiate. So my buyers bought a different home and the first one with the pi$$ed off sellers expired without selling. I don't know what my point is!

It depends. I find out from the listing agent what the status is of the seller. If in town I give them typically 24 hours.  If out of town or country that could take a bit longer. I also will add that if it's a hot property and I have a feeling more offers will show up (and we saw it first) then I will shorten the time frame if possible to get the home tied  up for my buyers.
