    One thing that helps is if you can get pre-approved for a mortgage loan. This helps the seller know you are serious and will not likely back out of a deal just because you cannot arrange financing.

    Also, you may be offering too little. It is pretty common for sellers to be asking too much; everyone thinks their home is worth more than it probably is. But you should research other listings in the area for similar homes, see if you can find any sales information at all on other homes, and see if you can find out what the tax appraised value is (which is usually less than the actual market value; take that number and divide by 0.9 to get closer to market value, as tax appraisals try to be in the neighborhood of 90% of market value).

    This research will allow you to make an offer that is closer to the asking price, without a lot of concern that you are overpaying.
