I am finding that it is hard to make an offer unless you first talk and present it to the broker. Then after he /she tells you it is to low or it is crazy offer or something then they say they will call the owner and see if he wants to talk to you or something along this line. ( Or I get, the owner will never consider this offer.)
When making an offer : Is this how it has to be? How is a basic offer made and do you have to pay for the time for due diligence ?
