Another option that might give you more bargaining power is looking for a bank owned home or REO. They want to sell, it usually will be a very quick closing but you will buy strictly as is and they will sell for the market value or lower, they are not looking to make a profit. You have to do your homework upfront and make sure this home is what you want, home inspections, etc. Sometimes you can get a great deal. Find a "buyer's agent" to represent you because the agent for the bank will not be able to, they will have the bank's best interest in mind, not yours.
