Hello MJ, Most Listings are above par. Choose an agent with experience. Negotiate to a level that you are comfortable with. If you need a mortgage the bank will require an appraisal. If paying cash there are alternate suggestions and, I do not think the dock repair will stop you.
There is always a market for the specialty type homes. If your question is related to projected value increases it appears good as values have risen this year.
