Is there a way to prove that a higher offer actually exists on a home I want to buy?

Not happening to me, but very curious–say I put an offer on a home for $200k. I'm then told by my realtor that an offer for $205 was put in by another buyer and asks if I want to go higher. How do I know (or how can I know) that that higher offer isn't total BS and my realtor isn't trying to get me to buy more house?
