What you see is the asking or list price. That is simply the price that the owners and the listing agent have put on the home. As with everything in real estate is is all negotiable. So you do not have to "offer" that much for the home. Your best bet would be to get a "buyers" agent there in Morganton and have them help you negotiate a fair price for the home. A "buyers agent" would cost you nothing since their commission is already negotiated and is taken out of the seller's proceeds of the sale.
I am familiar with Morganton but, no longer live in that area. I do however know some excellent agents in the area if you need one you can contact me through my profile here on Trulia.
Hope this helps,
