is it rude to ask 30% less then the asking price?

The home has been on and off the market for over a year. The homeowners have been slowly working the price down by 2 or 4 thousands every couple of months.

I did nothing and waited. Everybody kept telling me that it is rude to ask 30% less, because the home was not more than 200,000, and it was priced slightly low compare to other homes similar in the neighborhood. The price of the house started at $124,000 and now i believe is 79,000. They left the home unoccupied with no heat or power for about 8 months, so the pipes froze, has a leaky roof, the appliances are gone, and has over grown bushes. Nobody wants it, including me. I guess it would be a great investment now. Next time if i see something i want i will give them a take it or leave it price. I have to remind myself it is a buyers market. They should be fighting over me :)

The first question is what did it start at and what is it now? The best way to approach the situation is a a professional Realtor do a CMA - Competitive Market Analysis on the home. You may find that it is priced to high or just right and the sellers are testing the market for the right price. You should not pay any fees when you work with a Realtor on the buying side, so I can't go wrong working with a professional. They know how to present a price without being rude.
