in every market all percentages are negotiable. If your considering buying a home a good Real Estate Agent will explore all percentages and prices to ensure you are getting the best deal. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact me at:

why 10% off??? Do you think the home is overpriced by that amount or are you just trying to buy at a bargain price??
Remember, you're not the only one that may submit an offer on the home.
So, to answer whether it's an insult: consider whether it's a waste of your time to go see a house that is definitely not worth what it's listed for. The potential buyer has already been "insulted" or at least deceived - turn about is fair play. Just forget whether the seller will be offended - at some point he needs to face reality.
Using comparable sales in the area your Realtor can probably come up with a fair offer to make on a house (and that may bear no resemblance to the listed price). If that turns out to be 10% below list, so be it.

As you can see from the answers below there are many factors to consider when a seller considers an offer. It will help to use a licensed real estate agent to represent you in the transaction as their experience and knowledge of the local area can guide you to position your offer in the best light.

I think in most cases today if you offer 10% off a house that is priced right, you might not even get a response.
We always look at a number of factors before you bid including sales prices of other homes in the area, marketability of the house you are bidding on, what the seller paid, what they owe, days on market and other factors.
I always present every offer even if it is for $1....often I tell buyers now though, it is not always what the seller will accept, it is what other buyers are willing to pay. Not every home sells the 1st day on the market, but that doesn't mean they are priced wrong.
Price isn't everything....sometimes it depends on so many other factors in the offer....leasebacks, closing costs, closing day, option period, cash or financing, how much financing, lender, title and many other items.
