Remember, it never hurts to ask. Good luck!
If they are asking $2000, and everything comparable to the property in the area is renting for $2200, then don't expect them to budge much. Also, is the property vacant, and if so, how long? Does the owner "need" someone in there to cover the mortgage, etc. - or can they afford to "hold" out until they get what they want?
Also, what are you offering them? Spotless credit? A longer lease? A bigger deposit? Excellent references?
Consideration of all of the above will determine how "willing" an owner will be to work with you and the monthly rental amount.
