How can the value of a home be different from its purchase price? You just established its value.
TJG210, the lender will require appraisal and based on that if appraises at 200k and purchase price is 250k, either buyer will need 50k from other source or seller has to drop price.
Always make offer contingent upon inspection, financing/appraisal. If you agree to pay over market value, the seller is under no obligation to sell it there if contingencies are not in place.
Anyone who thinks a person saying "I feel like my house is worth 300k" and a lending institution will just go along if another individual agrees is foolish
