For unmotivated sellers, is it a line in the sand, often based on their interpretation of the media reports, what their neighbor 'said' that his/her home sold for, and more of a fishing effort. You will be able to quickly identify these sellers by their approach to negotiation.
When working with buyers, I always prepare a market absorption analysis for the past 6 months, and review the current inventory and those sold, when determining an offer. This approach is invaluable when positioning a lower offer to the seller, as the market absorption analysis facts introduce reality, allowing the seller to quickly grasp the situation.
Sell now, or try to be the one in X to sell next month.
