Hi Kathy,

All situations are diferent. The main thing is to do your homework to determine what the recent market value is for the property. A local Realtor should be able to get you the proper MLS inormation that you need for this.
It would also to be valuable to know how motivated the seller is. If they have been on for 5 months and only dropped $10k they don't appear to be very motivated.

My honest opinion is if you have never sold a property before, you will be better off with a realtor.

If your property is priced correctly it will sell. Most folks that I deal with on the mortgage side that are making offers on FSBO's look at the comparable sales. Figure out the amount they would offer and reduce the figure by 5% the same as you would be paying except you have the headaches that go along with knowing what needs to happen to sell a property. I am in no way condoning the math or the vaidity of the stratagy, I am just telling you what I hear when a buyer is making an offer on a FSBO. ... more

It may be a "long shot" but you won't know it they will support your needs unless you ask.

Many people that find themselves in similar situations seek the advice of professionals to identify the scope and cost of necessary work, then build this into their offer to purchase the home.

When presenting the offer it is always best to clarify for the seller why the offer is lower then expected by identifying the anticipated repairs. What is often encountered is that the seller has already taken these repairs and condition of the home in consideration at the time of establishing the sale price.

God luck
