The price a seller is willing to accept can only be determined by the seller themselves. Our recommendation it to consult your real estate agent to get their insight on this matter. Request them to review the recently sold comps for property sold in this location.

This should provide a better understanding for you.

Good luck,

As already answered, the only way the potential buyer will determine what price the Seller will accept will be to submit an offer. The Listing Agent owes allegiance to the Seller and will protect any information he/she has about what price the Seller will accept.

Though the process of submitting an offer may be time consuming, it is evidence to the Seller that the potential buyer is serious about wanting to make the purchase as opposed to making a casual inquiry.

Good luck!

Also Tom, a lot of times we go into a house that is bank owned and someone has taken the sink, cabinets, appliances etc. When a seller gives up, they have separated themselves from the house and oftentimes their pride. It is pretty sad. And the bank is using someone from out of the area to represent it. So again, you should be finding a good agent to represent you, provide you with comps and help you make a realistic offer.

Dear Tom,

Exactly right by Scott Godzyk. I've some experience with 'fixers' and the Anacostia neighborhoods, and would be glad to lend a hand. Cheers,

The only way to tell is to make an offer in writing, your best bet would be to get a buyer broker who can assist you with your offer as well as guide you through the finacial state and background of the seller and/or the property. In most cases you can hire a buyer broker at no cost to you as thy get paid by the listing broker at closing. this way you have someone looking out for you.
