Haig gave you a very good answer, in general all asking prices are negotiable, of course if a property is price super market competitively, then there will be several offers, if the property is particular well
updated and has a great floor plan, there will be more interest, and if you are in an area with a low
inventory, you may have to double think what to offer. Make sure you do work with an experienced
Buyers Agent, who will work on your behalf and give you some very helpful advice based on how much you like the home and how it is price in the area market.

As the others have said, price may be negotiable, but knowledge can give you the power of making an informed decision. But there are other factors involved as well these days.

Those factors include; an extremely HOT sellers market, there isn't enough inventory to meet the demand. The city of Troy is an extremely desirable location with many amenities that people seek. The condo has only been on the market for a week, so the newer a property is, the less likely the seller is going to fluctuate tremendously off their asking price. From what I can tell on the public records, the owners have a first and second mortgage recorded which added together is still NOT much less than their list price. Which tells me that they may have it listed at a price which will allow them to break even after the commissions and fees.

Also, looking at the comps in that subdivision, and what is currently available, this condo seems to be fairly priced. There is a similar one for sale in the complex for $329,000.00. So these owners may have priced it for a quick sale.

The bottom line in all of this is, if you work with a Realtor, we can give you all of the information needed to base your offer on, not a feeling or a guess. The seller will pay our commission so our service to you will not be costly.

Good Luck,

Thank you,

Everything in life is negotiable. Knowledge is power! The more you know about the property, the area, current market conditions, recent area sales, etc., the better it will be for you and your agent to negotiate in your favor. Best of luck.
If I can be of further assistance, feel free to give me a call.
Best regards,
