That way we are able to pay owner higher amount for their home in the first place and they would also receive extra money in the form of rent".
    What about more like:

    Our last offer was the most we were approved for and we are ready to proceed ASAP , could you please ask the owner what is the absolute lowest price they would take if we were in a position to sign a contract on Friday ( or whatever day you will have your finance approval) as we trying to obtain an increase from the bank and will know on Friday if we are successful . Would the owners also be interested in us paying them a weekly rent until settlement on the home to give them a little extra income and to show how serious we are about buying their home?
