As Tony stated, hard to say what they would take given they want more than you want to offer. In the 92081zip code, in that size range there is 1 home for sale. 3 BR, 2BA 1,366 SF listed for $425,000.
Sold in the last 6 months shows only 1 home under $300,000 in 92081. It is a 2 BR, 1 BA 1,088 SF home with a guest house. We think the guest house could be in the square footage. The house was built in 1946, had a broken sewer pipe and sold for $260,000.
The next least expensive one on the list is 2 BR, 2BA 1,098 SF built in 1984 and remodeled some that sold for $329,937.
The best thing to do is hire an agent to help you find what you are seeking. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Best of luck,
