While the home does seem to be priced a bit high for the neighborhood, it's hard to know what a seller will accept without making an offer. The home has been on the market for over 3 months with only one slight price reduction of $5000. It's a good sign the seller is not highly motivated.
There is also a 4bd/2.75ba home on the same street currently on the market:
It was originally listed at $799K, but was recently reduced to $749K. It has also been upgraded and has a pool.
If you're interested in getting listings directly from the MLS emailed to you, I'd be happy to set that up.

I'm happy to report that 17412 has just closed escrow today at $830,000. This represents about $377 per Sq. Ft. in sales price. This should make the neighbors happy! This was a spectacular property in pristine condition. We found just the right buyers that appreciated all the ammenities this home had to offer. If you need assistance in selling your home, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sellers can ask whatever price they want, but the buyers will have their say, in the form of offered prices. In a nutshell, whatever the market will bear, is how much it will sell for, assuming that the seller is truly intent on selling.
In a case such as this, it's critical to have an agent working for you who's an expert negotiator. If your agent is not a trained negotiator, please contact me and I'll be happy to assist you in your purchase. As I'm also a mortgage broker, in addition to being a Realtor, I can also help you with your financing, if you're not paying cash.
