With the market being where it is, our agent is recommending we offer 10-15k over asking. This would bring our bid to the very top of our budget. Is this simply an aggressive tactic to ensure we get the house leading to their (higher) commission? Is the agent just trying to help us get a house we want in a hot market?
Obviously we'd have inspection and financing conditions. We don't have any condition for possession / move in dates so I am thinking that even if we bid closer to asking, we might still have a chance?
