What percentage can you take off property when making an offer?

I have offered below 10 percent and it was refused. What offer is usually accepted in percentage terms? Thanks.

  • Tricky one to answer as everyone is different but 10% is a bit higher than normal...about 5 to 7% more commonly. Do your research on zoopla as it's not really the % that matters, just the price you actually pay! Good luck.

  • Look at sold prices to get an idea of what people are paying for similar properties in the street/area. The asking price might be over what they are willing to accept, but look at whether it is 10% or 5% over the general price paid for a similar property in the area. There is no general rule or percentage when it comes to offering on property. Whilst 10% below might be a good place to start, you need to look more closely at what the property is worth in terms of history and sale prices paid, and what it is worth to you.

  • 10 to 15 percent when I make an offer to the property I want to buy.
