Erin Murphy, Other/Just Looking in New York

I am looking at putting an offer in on a house listed for $134,900. The house is vacant and I believe it has been on the market for over 6 months.

Asked by Erin Murphy, New York Mon Jan 28, 2013

My realtor is saying is should bid 134,00 with the seller paying my closing cost and paying for a 2/1 buy down. I want to try and offer less. What do you think?

Dear Erin:

Since none of us have seen the house or know how much the property is ultimately worth, you have to figure out this one for yourself or with the aid of your real estate agent. Good luck!

You are the only person who should be deciding how much to offer; neither your Realtor nor participants in Trulia Voice should be providing suggestions.

What is it worth to you? It is assumed that there will be some negotiations.

Since you already have an agent to guide you, not sure why the question...
