$350000 market value of a normal regular house should be $310-$320000 if it is on power of sale or a foreclosure.
But it is very hard to find that deal as usually listing agent has investers who buy as soon as something comes into the market.
I tried many times but failed. Good luck in your case.

usually properties are badly managed and you will loose almost all appliances, sometimes light and plumbing fixtures also. You need a good professional home inspector to do pre-buy inspection depending if they allow, usually these sold as is basis.

Basically you guys are saying, If you get 30-40k off, you will end up spending that money on repair etc?

Not always the case, its not necessary that you need to do a lot of repair, it depends and vary from property to property!
you can get good deal for pricier houses, not much saving on 3-400 K houses.
There was a house worth 1.8 million, and it was power of sale, it sold for 700K one steal of a deal!
Initially bank listed it for higher price but after a year or so they keep lowering the price, and finally it sold for 700k

Here is the link to property, we had a showing and it was in 95% perfect condition, very minimum repair needed.
