Short Sale offers, how much should I list my house for?


My house has been for sale for a year now and I can no longer afford to make payments. I want to try to do a short sale before I consider foreclosure, but the bank will give me no suggstions as to how much an acceptable lowball offer would be. I owe 165,000 on the house and want to get out of there asap!!! I was thinking 139,999, what do you think would be the lowest the bank would take?
