Unfortunately, homes in the area are getting overpriced, as a lot have been bought as second homes, as is the case with the one I'm looking at. I need average time on the market for the area, as well as a lot of details. I hate to admit that I've fallen in love with the house, and it won't be a second home, it would be my home. But we just can't afford the price their asking. But comparable homes on the market are going for more than 30% less than they're asking. We wouldn't want to offend anyone when we make an offer, but they're going through a 'Harbor Country' Realtor, and that scares us too.
Is this home listed with an agent?
I would personally recommend that you have your own agent representing you. They should have a better handle on the condition of the comparable sales and know if there are more that you are not finding. I would hate to see you overpay.
I am an accredited buyers agent and e-pro.
I live in Buchanan and my office is in Stevensville. If you haven`t found help yet I would be happy to research the property and the comparable sales for you.
I have been a life long resident of the area.
A buyers agent, or any Realtor with access to the local MLS, could check the "property history" on the listing and see if there were ever any offers, price changes, etc.
If the property has been on the market for seven months, you may have bargaining power thru a buyers agent.
If the house is listed with a Realtor, then you need your own Realtor who can answer your questions about Day on market, etc. You don't pay for it, the seller does.
If you need help finding an agent, we can help you.
