It's her job to advise you and carry out your wishes; not to refuse to follow your instructions.
In this market what is "too low"?
I just closed on a condo that had been listed for $187,500 with some buyer clients of mine; we bought it for $147,000 and it was in very good condition.
It is absolutely a buyer's market in Knoxville, Tennessee right now and I'm seeing buyers getting some pretty awesome prices on homes.
I submit all offers just as we are required to do. They may come back with a counter, who knows? There's a lot of foreclosures in Fountain City. Look for short sales too. They are good because the lender doesn't have all the legal fees to pack on.
Your buyer's agent should write any offer you want her to if she is representing you; however, it is very unlikely that it will be accepted. There are many things that can affect whether a bank will accept a lower offer: days on market, if there are other offers on the property, how many showings they are getting a week, etc. Also, how much did it sell for before when it was in remodeled condition, what are the neighborhood property values, etc?

Most of the time foreclosures are priced taking in consideration what needs to be done to the home. While your offer may be low, it is hard for me to determine that since I do not know which property it is or any stats on the property . Time on market may result in a reduced asking price eventually if there is no interest in the property. Our code of ethics require us to submit all offers unless the seller requests otherwise.
