  • You can offer what you want don't be afraid to ask. I have but low bids in myself and sometimes you can be surprised by the response. The vendor might be offended but don't worry about that.

  • Some might not care about offending people, but some do. Because some people might want the property they offer on. Those without morals should go to auction.

  • You could always ask the estate agent, as they probably know the minimum price range that the vendor would be willing to accept.

  • I spent 2 years trying to buy a house in the Formby area I spent weeks offering on every house in my price range a cash offer One lady I offered £5000 less than her asking price she said no to me twice only to sell her house £7000 less anyway a year later. The house I did buy I offered £15000 less than the asking price and 14 offers later and 2 years on sold it to me £7000 less than the asking price. The Idea is forget about upsetting people and go with your gut feeling. You have nothing to lose only your pride however there is no feelings when you are trying to do the best deal for your family, good luck.
