FMV vs. Asking Sale Price

FMV vs. Asking Sale Price

If you are searching for a owner finance and the sale price is far above the FMV price. ie. asking price 20K FMV $8500, what do you offer and how do you figure it out?

Please advise. I looks like it has been on the market for approx 146 days.

Someone correct me if I'm

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but you should calculate your offer the same way you always do. (FMV-Profit margin-Holding costs-REA commission-closing costs-rehab) Just some of the things you can deduct from your offer.

You may offer a bit less to leave room for negotiating, but never go over your maximum allowable offer. If they want more than that then walk away letting them know that the offer will be on the table in the future if they decide to lower their price at a later time.
