If it's a short sale property, then run for your life!

If you don't have a strong, experienced Buyer's Agent, then run for your life!

If you don't know what you're doing, and don't have competent representation, then run for your life!

Is that the kind of HELP you were asking for??

There are many other factors besides square footage that goes into evaluating a fair price for a home. For example, what is the condition of the home; any upgrades (for example, granite counter tops); lot size; amenities (for example, does it have a pool?); etc.

At this writing there were 17 homes available in Springfield Lakes ranging from $147,900 to $354,500. The average listing price per square foot is approximately is $132/sqft. Over the past 3 months, there were 16 sales, with average price per square foot of $109/sqft.

This seems to indicate that the house you are interested may be a good deal. But again, this is only a very preliminary assessment. We would need to research the house in more detail to reach a conclusion whether or not it is a good price.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hi Starman,
Exciting area and exciting market! As my fellow peers have mentioned there are all kinds of factors that play into the short sale. It is really difficult to tell you whether it is a good buy without knowing other pieces of information. Do yourself a favor and work with experience if you are looking into a home purchase otherwise take Randy's advice and "Run for your life!" Today's agent needs to have knowledge of the process and be able to relate that to you. Before I was a realtor, I was a lender so I am very familiar with the short sale and financing aspect. I would love to share some valuable experience.

I ran some quick comps on Springfield Lakes. The average closing price for that sq. footage is $178,667, so $190,000 is a little high. However, if the home is in great condition, that would be a fair price.

I'm very familiar with Springfield Lakes and have helped many buyers and sellers with short sales. If you have any questions, please call me.

Appears to be a good value! Great area!

You may need comps on the area and additional features to decide! If its a great home there will probably be multiple offers.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

It depends on many factors, like condition, upgrades, etc... Also there are many other terms to the offer, outside the offer price. Your agent will be able to provide you with good comparables and make the proper adjutsments for you. Designing a good offer is not as easy as it may look!

Hi Starman, If you or someone you know is interested in buying or selling a home in Springfield Lakes in Chandler the best advice is to seek the professional representation of a realtor. Your realtor will counsel you on the sale or purchase of a property, including short sales. Along with providing you with a competitive market analysis which will assist you in determining the market value of a property your realtor will also assist you in determining the best (selling or purchase) negotiation strategy for the property under consideration.

Blessings, Sherrilee
