If it's truly under market value, why offer even less? It could be you're response is "no" through ignoring it. Offer what makes sense and reflects your interest in the property.
You can't make someone change their ways, so if you know this person is careless, you and your agent, if you proceed with this transaction, must leave nothing to chance that could hurt you.
Assume they will miss deadlines, if the offer is accepted Assume they will be difficult to deal with, because that is their reputation. If it's not worth the headaches, move on and find another place.

Sure, of course. You don't have to agree to it and they don't have to agree to the sale.

If you turn a property upside-down, what shakes out is personal property and what stays attached is real property.

I give my buyers this timeline.. once the offer is accepted your purchase and sale is usually signed a week after that. Then by the time all the mortgage "Stuff" gets handled it is usually a month after the purchase and sale.

This property is NOT currently on the market. I'm not sure why Trulia doesn't clarify this with bold, large font, black with red lettering stating this fact. Trulia shows properties that are now bank owned.

As the description states...Bank Repossessed. This property has completed the foreclosure process and is now owned by the foreclosing lender, which took title to the property.

There's a good chance the property will be listed in the near future by an agent. Contact a local agent and have them keep their eye out - and follow yourself! Do not pay any attention to the price they show next to the address. The owning bank will hire an appraiser or agent to visit the property and assess value. They will price the property based on local comparable sales and condition. That will likely be the price they will start the listing.
