Is 10% under list too low for first offer on a home in greater Atlanta vacant since Feb 2008?

Found a home and very happy with nearly everything, but feel that in current economy I have additional bargaining power.  Home has been on market and vacant nearly a year and wondering if 10% under list would be considered an insulting first offer.

It really depends on the listing price, check the comps in the area to see what recent sales prices are.

I agree with Pasa.  Offer between 40 to 50% off.  Worst that can happen is that the bank says no.

If it has been on the market for almost 1 year, that is way too much too be offering.  It should be closer to 40% off of list price, especially in that area.
