Christopher Pagli answered:
There is no rule of thumb. Don't automatically think a home is over priced or you are getting to get a steal. Many home owners have been more realistic with pricing over the years and price according to what has sold in their area. Make an educated offer based on this info and what you truly feel it's worth. It could very well be the asking price or even more in some cases.

Check with your local zoning office if a tree removal permit is necessary. Better to do it correctly right from the start.

Layth Abbasi answered:
Hello Lidia, are your offers being accepted? usually if your agent is advising you not to put such a low offer, it means that his expertise is telling them that the offer is unreasonable based on market comparable sales. When i work with buyers and they see a house they like, i normally do a CMA for them to see what a FAIR price is for the house. There are certain situations where the house is priced right, and it would not be worth it to offer even a dollar below asking... Many of my listings actually sell above asking price. At the end of the day, list price means nothing, you need to know what the houses market value is, and the only way to know for sure is for your agent to run a CMA. If after the CMA you still want to present a low offer, then it is up to your agent to do his or her best to get it accepted, regardless. ... more

Laura Giannotta answered:
New Jersey does not require written notice that an offer has not been accepted. But it is in the agents best interest and yours that they do so. That is the only way you'll know if it's been presented. If your agent refuses to do so, fire her/him, hire somebody else. You make the call!
Every offer I present asks for the seller to sign for acceptance, make changes and initial or reject, with a simple singature on the cover to the word rejected. All signatures or initials are dated.

Dear Nivea,
There is no set amount to take off a price. I can show you homes that are selling for at or abouve the list price around our area. It all depends on the way a home was priced. Your agent should provide you with a CMA to show you where the home should be selling at and then you can arrive at an offer price.
Good luck.

John Sacktig answered:
To go into purchasing a home.. for you to ask.. how much to take off the price assumes that the house is overpriced and you should take money off.

Get comps in the area and make an educated offer compared to other homes sold in the area... maybe it is priced right. I recently listed and sold a home in one day. how? the owner said .. price the house to sell in 1 day, lets take all in to consideration and sell it quickly. We had three offers within 1 day.. two people came in 25k under asking price with all of these explanations as to why..and we told them no.
One person did their homework and Paid full price stating that even at full price, it was a great buy.

Don't go in thinking how much you can take off the price, educate yourself on sales in the area and make an educated decision.
