yeah definitely go lower, be cheeky it may pay off, they obviously want to sell as they have dropped the price, so take advantage of their need to get a sale.

But only if you are in a strong position, they probably won't accept if you have something of your own to sell, or haven't got a mortgage offer agreed.

Forgot to say,
try and find out how much they bought the house for, look it up on the internet
maybe here

because if they have only had it a few years they will be unlikely to want less than they paid,

so maybe pitch your first offer above this

Go and look at it first! If you like it offer 140 - that's 10% off which seems to be the standard offer in the curretn climate.

Also check the property on zoopla, which estimates current value given the last price paid and how average prices have moved in the area since. May be off if the owners have done a lot of renovation, and tbh I'm not sure how accurate it is, but we look everything up on there.
