At this stage of recruitment, there is no right or wrong answer. Be honest. Your Futur employer will understand the need for you to weigh the pros and cons one last time. The most important thing is what you do once you have accepted the offer.

Verbal or written agreement?
"I said yes to my new employer, should I still confirms it in writing? "Is a recurring question. The answer is a resounding" YES. "If, after your answer you received a written proposal for the position, you must reply in writing too, to be courteous in any case.
