It looks like your parents bought a home without the help of a realtor. If they bought it from the seller directly it is possible that they were taken advantage of or the blind guiding the blind. I would suggest that they talk to an attorney, bring all the documents and correspondence that they had with the seller of the home. Maybe the attorney can help out after reading all the agreements.... more
No one can tell you how much to offer. If the seller isn't motivated they will not accept the offer anyway. If you really like the home try not to piss off the seller by making a low ball offer. That happened to my seller client and he decided not even work with the buyer who presented a low ball offer.
Have you viewed the home? Is the home presentable? Ask your realtor for comps and see how the home is priced. Homes can stay on the market for quite sometime and for many reasons such as condition of the property, over priced, local market demand etc.
If you are currently not working with a realtor then I'd be happy to assist you. You can call me at 469-371-2899 to discuss.

Good luck. Your unwanted guest could move your belongings as well and not be arrested since nobody knows what is yours and what is theirs. No legal advise is given or implied. Call an attorney. Call the police if they ever get physical.... more
I would contact you local HOA and request a copy of the bylaws. Alot of the time they will give you a link to view it in pdf forms online. Hopefully this helps. Note: This only applies if this current property is falling in the same exsisting HOA subdivision. Let us know what you uncover.
