Work with a buyers agent who will do the research and determine a fair market price range. But you have the final determination on what to offer.

Not a penny more than you are willing to pay!
You don't need a REALTOR for that.

What I do know FOR SURE is you will never be successful with a home purchase polling strangers for price information on the internet. You can not win the good stuff waiting 24 hours to put in an offer.

Get this house for sure? How many other offers are on the table? How bad do you want the house? Offer the highest and best you are able and willing to pay for the property, nothing more and nothing less.

I am hoping that you are working with a real estate agent. If that is the case, ask him/her to show you the comparable houses sold in the same area in the past 6 months. This will give you a clear vision of what you supposed to offer.

Best of Luck,

What house? Look at comparables and see how it fits? Has it been on the market 3 days or 3 weeks or 3 months? There are lots of ways to look at it.

And which house is that? The escalation clause with a max price you will go is as close as you can get to a "for sure" but a good agent can find out if there are other offers, the estimated market value today, then the best way to position youroiffer and to present it is person, for the best chance. There are many nuances to making an offer that a seasoned and trained agent can help you with. You are in Redding? Buying in Chicago? If I were the seller I would want to know more about your situation before I commited to taking my house off the market for you. Your intentions, if you have anything to sell first, how you will pay of it, if you are pre-approved for financing if needed, when you intend to close the deal. Send me an email for other ideas. cwitzig@verizon.net. Or, contact the agents here who offer to help you in the Chicago arera.

This is where you should be working with a real estate broker to help you make this decision. Your question does not contain a specific house or the list price. That being said, the asking price is usually a price the seller is willing to accept. Without know what property and how much, no one can advise you if it is listed at, about or below market without more details. However, if you work with an area specialist, you will be well on the right tract to being better served.

There are times even offering full price won't get you the home.............it depends on how well it is priced, and what the demand is (competing offers).

Also depends on your offer's terms.

Since no one here knows what home you're referencing, I suggest speaking to a local agent for concrete, useful advice.

You might also consider adding an escalation clause to your offer, if your Broker thinks that's a good idea. Example: you could offer an automatic increase of $1,000 -$5,000 over and above any other offer, up to a pre-determined price. Good luck!

Offer full list price and you are sure to get it. Offering less adds a possibility you won't.
