As stated by others, NO PROOF IS REQUIRED when you make a purchase offer.
You literally can offer $1 for a house. That offer, however, will not be taken seriously.
There are three common ways a home value can be established. Be fully aware, value is what a willing seller and willing and capable buyer agree upon.
The illusion that a bank ordered appraisal determines value is misguided. The bank order appraisal is to set the parameter so the mortgage can be sold to an investor. Too often, this results in a seller beat-down on price so the bank can sell the mortgage.
A home in a community of few sales of similar properties will be subject to a punishing beat down through the appraisal process. The agent representing the seller should and will anticipate this. The agent will and should protect the home owner.
Since you are on an aggregate website and trolling for random numbers to justify a purchase offer suggests you are not working with a real estate professional. For home buyers, in most cases, access to the services of a real estate professional is provided without charge to you. You need to CALL a Passaic real estate professional and get the real values, the facts and allow them to position your offer so it will be taken seriously and you can be positioned for the sellers response.
What you see on aggregate websites, including Trulia is for entertainment purposes. If you are serious, you need to promote yourself to serious resources. CALL a PRO.
Best of success to you,
