Value? Whatever you say it's worth to you. If you want it badly then negotiations are problematic.
As I recall I bought 1 or 2 domains from "the Russians". You can negotiate with them. Offering 50% of the asking price, if it's not an off the wall price, might work. You can always bargain up. You could offer less but that approach sometimes fails miserably. Can't say what to offer without more info, but again, it's also about your wants.
Use Escrow.com. Too many scams coming out of the region to use any other approach.
You might do a whois and see when it expires. Chances are they will drop it if they don't sell it before it expires. To be really cautious, get a similar name and then wait them out. (this might not be a good idea if it's a really competitive name)
Services like godaddy.com will allow this for a certain price.
From my understanding, all it does is, when the domain is available, they will pick it up immediately for you. Again, I've never done this myself, so I can't say that it will always work.
