Since you're the buyer, you can call the shots...assuming your market is like most of the others: lousy. How long has this condo been on the market? The longer the better for you. If you are not comfortable with the $250k range, then offer lower. Don't worry about offending anyone, just do it. But make sure your offer is stong, i.e, have your loan already in place. Shoot me your email in a private message. I'll send you my number in case you want to do some major brain-picking. I don't mind. Private messages are free during happy hour Friday after market close. Keep us posted.
