I don't think it's a bad price at all compared to what the prices used to be around here, however if you are planning on staying in the area there are some serious Steals in Phillips, and the taxes are cheaper! There is a beautiful house that was just renovated on Rt 142 outside of town going towards Kingfield that has River Frontage and a 2 car garage with a loft above. There are also a couple of Very nice places on Route 4 going towards Rangeley almost into Madrid. The property on Route 4 is a huge Renovated Farmhouse with garage, acerage and river frontage also. We have a property for sale in Madrid, but that may be too far for you.
There is a beautiful Victorian on the corner of Main Street and I can't remember the other one, but if you turn left onto maine street it's directly behind you, it's 3 Stories, and White, in Downtown Phillps it needs ALOT of work, but I think it's like 12,000.00 or something ridiculous like that. You could pick that up and turn it over....
Phillips elementary School has one of the best ratings in the state, and it's closer to Saddleback! WOOHOO Powder Days!! But Farmington is an awesome little town to walk at night...such a toss up!!! Good Luck!
The Listing Agent represents the seller and cannot give you pricing advice. Your best bet is to find an agent with whom you are comfortable, to represent you as a Buyer Agent.
Have them show you recent sales of comparable homes and give you pricing advice. It is true that well priced homes are selling even in this market.
Good luck and I hope you get the home of your dreams!

Dont miss out over what could cost you $10 a month in the long run. Rates are down- prices are low- and its a great time to buy!
If this property is in good condition and has decent square footage, I'd advise offering asking price or close to it before someone else does. What's your hesitation?
