Can I purchase a house then get financing for it within 90 days?

How much more should I offer than the asking price when it's a hot market and people are overbidding because there are multiple offers?
Why don't you talk to your buyer's agent about including an escalation clause in your next offer? That way, you aren't guessing at what you should offer.
