Yes, we can all make minimally informed suggestions as to what we think a "fair price" will be and the suggestions will be of no value. You need the best local agent who works this market and price range to inform and advise you. The seller and their agent believe $9,000,000 is fair, but what is not clear is what they may accept.
There are no Blue Book valuations for homes. Appraisers can provide very well detailed opinions of value, but the true value of anything is what a willing and able buyer and a willing and motivated seller agree to do business at after exposing the product to the largest possible audience.
Please, find an outstanding local agent or ask us for a referral. Do not base your decisions on second hand opinions or automated valuations. Get a great pro and listen to them.
Is this a home you own or are looking to purchase? Are you already working with a realtor?
I have a large network of trusted agents, and I would be more than happy to get you in contact with someone that is sure to go above and beyond for your real-estate needs!
I look forward to getting you in touch with the right agent!
As the others have mentioned, fair price is what a buyer feels is a good price and what the seller will accept.
This is truly a special home for the owner, however, it will take another person to feel the same and then decide if they are willing to make an offer.
Sit down with a Broker and review the sales of similar homes and then decide on an asking price then make that offer.
There are currently 6 other homes with 6,000+sq.ft. for sale in Fremont / Pleasanton, however we can check the south bay and the west bay for another special home such as this home.
