It depends on how motivated the seller is, how well priced the home is and the current competition. While your question was 2 years ago, the market has changed significantly since then. Gone are the days are huge discounts off of asking price. We are now seeing multiple offer situations and some properties going for over asking price.

Please call me if you still require assistance.

If you are making an offer on a house you should try to find out why the seller is selling, how long the home is listed for sale, how many offers they had and if so what was refused. There are many negotiation techniques you can use. FYI Edgewater is holding its value very well compare to other towns in
Bergen County.
I see you live in Bayside NY, if you work in Manhattan, Edgewater is by far a better commute and better community. There are some approved short sales for sale. contact me if you wish to get more information. I hope this answer helps.

It all depends on the sellers current position. For example, how long they have been listed on the market, what are their current expenses including mortgage rate, appraisal values for the building, how many offers they have had, reason for selling, etc. Please contact a local Real Estate agent or call me, Joshua Baris 201-741-4999. I live in Edgewater and am currently serving my 8th term as the Vice President of the Board of Directors for Grand Cove I Condo Association in Edgewater, NJ. I am also a local Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. I look forward to speaking with you!

Hi Mickey!
It is about supply and demand, It also depends location ,condition and how well a home is priced. It is easy to get comps for most home to come up with a reasonable offer. Right now banks are very strict with appraising a property and most sellers are aware of it. Under the right guidence of a proffessional realtor with experince in the area you will be able to get the most reasonalbe price for your new home.

It depends on the Property, some sellers are more negotiable than others depending on their needs as to how much they owe and why are they selling. This is the right market to get any reductions and I believe that most homes that are for sale are because they owner needs to sell and knows they will not get as much they would have 2 years ago. The prices in areas like Edgewater have been reduced from years before but they will not fall much lower in my opinion, It will keep value since it is a desireable area with many new developments and it is so close to Manhattan.

That depends on the comparable sales and list price. What does your REALTOR say?
