There is no "typical" offer price. What is most important is what the most recent comparable home sold for. If a house is well priced, as compared to recent sales, buyers see the value and make initial offers close to the asking price. In some instances, (2 in the last 3 mos. for me) buyers paid full price and above asking price on properly priced homes. If you truly like the house, and the comparable sales are there, make a strong initial offer. Well priced homes sell fast and often at asking price.
