To answer your question...
Don't play games... Submit your best and final Price. In most cases, you are going to be in a "Multiple Offer Situation". You don't want to lose an opportunity to own your dream home over a few hundred bucks. Even if it's a couple thousand, that's pocket change in the grand scheme of things. Home prices will likely double or even triple over the course of the next 10 to 15 years. So who cares.... Just buy the dam place now... Before someone else does!!! Submit your best price and if it's not good enough, you won't have any regrets.
Good Luck! Let me know when you need a good agent to represent you! http://www.858-539-1848.com
There are short sales in all markets now, however an experienced agent can give you the comparative market value for the home you are interested in purchasing. Additionally, an experienced agent does his/her
homework with the listing agent to try to determine the seller's motives, or in the case of a short sale hopefully the listing agent has an idea of what the bank is willing to take. This is not a guarantee that the
bank will accept the offer always, but an again , an experienced agent can help you navigate this difficult
market place and help you purchase a home for the best value. Always remember, the value of a home, is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay. If I can help you further, or you have additional questions, La Jolla is one of my primary markets and I would be happy to help guide you.

Lately when Im showing short sales, When entering the property you can usually tell right away if the listed price makes any sense. Some of them I know that the price isn't where it should be and other's its a great deal.
You would have to view each one to know if the listed price matches the neighborhood and mostly the property.
You have to keep in mind also that sellers and selling banks will not do any repairs so you have to take that into consideration when making an offer.
Are there any particular short sales you would like to view?
The Offer is determined by a CMA, (Comparative Market Analysis) which is done by your Realtor.
It is an analysis of the SOLD comparable properties in the vicinity.
Please contact a Buyeer's Agent for details,
Good luck and may God bless
