I am looking at purchasing my landlords home. How can I verify the asking price is right for current market conditions?

Help the community by answering this question:


1. Yes, get a comparative market analysis from a local realtor. However, a realtor can make you a CMA in about 5 minutes, but a good CMA takes much longer.
2. If the price seems right, then you can proceed with the purchase and then on the Purchase Contract there is a clause 4A.1 that states you can get your earnest money back if the lender has a problem with the appraisal not being high enough.

Good Morning,

I also recommend contacting a Realtor for a comparable market analysis. Your Realtor can then help you make the decision to purchase, ask for a lower price or move forward to another home.
Good luck with your decision. If you need assistance, please give me a call, email or text.

Happy Holidays,

Get with a Realtor and have them pull the comps for the home you are interested in.

I guess you would have to define what YOU consider the "right price":

What do you consider "current market conditions"?
Is your Landlord "distressed"?
Is it a Shortsale?
Do you recognize that the Market is going up?
Do you know what the Market Value of the home is?
A Realtor can answer these questions.

Do NOT trust zestimates on Zillow or any other website. I recommend you consult with a Realtor® as well as having an appraisal done.

Good Morning
There are 2 ways that I can think of off of the top of my head you can check with Zillow, they track that information, or you can contact a Real Estate Agent. I would be happy to give you a CMA.

Happy Holidays
