Hi Norma. It looks like the price was raised to be more in line with the comparables in the Rotonda area. There are 3 other similar homes - 3 beds, 2 baths, Pool, 2500+ square feet, on a canal in that area listed for $330,000 to $360,000. This home was built in 2006 and the others in 1998 and 2000. The one for $360,000 is on a double lot. Homes in this area with similar characteristics built between 1996 and 2006 have sold this year have for between $200,000 and $360,000. This home appears (from available data) to be very nicely built and is the newest one available. It could easily be price anywhere between $300,000 and $350,000. In this market at this time considering that it was already priced at $300,000 you could make making an offer between $275,000 and $300,000 and nobody's feelings should get hurt. I hope you will call me when you are ready to buy. I can help you get the right home at the best price.
