interest is 659,000.These prices are very high for the 19131 zip code in Philadelphia, PA. The sellers bought the house for 205,000 in July, 2007. They have made, by my estimate, a maximum of 75,000 in improvements.
2009 - 2010 is a different
economy than 2006.
I want to offer 450,000. What are m changes of getting the house?

Help the community by answering this question:


honestly probably not likely unless you wait for the seller to start reducing their list price. It has been my experience that overpriced houses are overpriced because the current owners think they can get that price, or something near to it. Like stated below, you have nothing to lose by submitting your offer, but considering your max is more than 200k less than the currrent price, I don't think the seller would be receptive to such a lowball offer unless the property has been on the market for a looooooong time. Good luck!

You can place any offer you like, all depends on what bank will accept

Banks do have entire library of pictures, BPO and etc. very well aware of value of home, banks don't have accept any offer till they find works within their overall costs of taking possession of home.

Are you working with a Realtor? It would be in your best interest if you do. This way, they can give you all of the ammunition you would need to make any offers based on what your Realtor shows in the paperwork.

That being said, what is the home you are wanting to bid on? If you email me, as long as you are not working with a Realtor, I could see what ballpark parnge you should be offering for the home.

Hope that helps,

Make an offer and see. All the seller can do is to reject/counter/accept your offer.
