    Much of it comes back to knowing/understanding the value of a home in certain areas. Best to try and see what other homes go for in the same area. Definitely make an offer. From 20,000 to 14,000 is a big jump. Keep in mind that furnished places will cost more … Homes with a pool may be more. If the house is in the North, you’re probably paying more than you would in other areas. Find out what other services are included … Some owners will include Internet and other services. All of these factors can determine the price. But definitely, make an offer… I wouldn’t worry sooo much about insulting them. Know your budget and try to stay within that. The worst they can say is no.
