Mortgage Broker Or Lender, Leesburg, VA

You should offer the lowest amount the seller is willing to accept, no more...
Buying a home is not much different than buying a car. Comp sales (year and models) are similar and used car prices are based on those figures (blue book etc).
Open low, take a counter, meet in the middle...Haggle!!
Good luck, Jim
Apparently you not working with a Realtor and now you're looking for our advise.
If you were working with someone they would be able to answer that in a matter of minutes.
By not working with a Realtor the seller is enjoying the discount not you.
Good luck to you !
Not enough info here to do a market analysis to determine the current market value however if $45,000 is a true comp then start close to that. Listingbook pulls sales data right from our MLS. Try it. If you need help, just give me a call.
