How much should I offerI am looking to buy my first home, and after bidding 10k over the asking price on 4 houses, just to be outdone by investors I am starting to get discouraged. I live in AZ where houses are actually affordable at the moment, This was my big chance, or so i thought. My question is how much more do i need to offer to be a contender?August 22 2009 - Glendale00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
