Seems like a decision tree would be useful here:

Step 1 - Is this your only offer? If no, go to step 2

Step 2 - Ask them what the salary will be? If they have a negative reaction, go to step 3; if they don't know, go to step 4

Step 3 - Do you really want to work for a firm that won't even tell you your salary in advance? Would you sell your house for a 'fair price' that you find out after closing?

Step 4 - If they can tell you how they will determine the salary, then make simple inquiries into what the historical trend is.

Don't make decisions without all the available information. Think of this as due diligence.
