Yes, that is correct. Your agent should be able to do a comparative market analyisis for you. I am very local to the Wakefield area so if you need any assistance please don't hesitate to contact me day or night.
An agent can do a market analysis for you and help you determine a realistic value/offer price. Please let me know if I can do that for you or help you search for properties. As a buyer's agent, I work for you and my help is no cost to you!
If you are interested in a condo, I would make sure your Realtor does a market analysis on the home which are in a similar location and quality of the building as well as the age of the building. Price for the units are negotiable, but the Home Owners Association are not negotiable. These HOA fees are based on what the board has dictated the maintenance, and likely repairs to the building will be.
