On a more serious note, stop fixating on the asking price and focus solely on comps (more recent the better as market is changing quickly). Search more broadly for comps depending on data availability, and if you can't figure out the fair value of the property based on the available data, fire your agent and get a better one that can figure it out for you. Paying below or above listing price as a buyer doesn't mean anything at end of the day. What matters is what you paid for the property compared to what your neighbours who bought recently paid for their homes.
Market in the last few months have been on a tear setting new highs by the week. Posters on this thread have shared that they recently lost bids when bidding higher than what the most recent comps supported, which makes sense as the very definition of real estate price increase is when buyers pay more for than before for similar properties. IMO a decent buy in this market right now is getting a property for what similar properties sold in June, July, and August.
