Asked by Windowshopper, Lynnwood, WA • Sat Dec 19, 2009
I'm looking in Snohomish county for a spacious 4 BR (e.g., over 2000 sf), good sized yard (e.g., over 6500 sf), good schools (e.g., Northshore, Mill Creek, Mukilteo), around the $310-350k range. It's actually tough to get all these in this range, unless I go for an updater which will cut into my budget.
There are occasionally good options in the $360-$390k range. So, my feeling is that I need to be aggressive and offer a near lowball to get a high-300's home (maybe low 400's) down to my comfort range of low to mid 300's.
So, my questions:
1) In this price range, and for my expectations, is it reasonable to push for a price reduction of $30-50k?
2) What kinds of things would indicate a strong candidate for a low offer?
3) Does anyone have a good feel for how low offers are usually perceived by an owner vs. a flipper/investor vs. new construction?
Thanks for the advice!
