As far as offers are concerned, I would just offer what (or less than) I was happy to pay and take it from there. I have just bought a car and had the BS about “this is the lowest we can possibly go”. Well we got a bit below the bottom if you know what I mean. The properties I have been offered so far have not been with CAM, so I don’t know how they deal with haggling.
I believe that CAM offer some kind of beneficial mortgage deals on these properties, but again I haven’t explored this with them.
I am trying to view a CAM house shortly… Maybe more to follow.
