How do I know if I should offer more or less than the listing price in Turlock?

Is there a difference if I'm looking for a single family home versus a condo, or some other type of property?

Working with a real esate agent is of most importance in this market. Ask for an analysis of comparable properties specific to the one you are interested in. Although a lender, or appraiser will look at comparables as far as 6 months back - you need to an analysis showing 30, 60, and 90 days back. You need to look strongly at 'pending sales' and 'solds' within this time period.

If you like the area, the house, and you know your own financial comfort level, buy the house you want at a price you can afford. As T. Harv Ecker says, "Don't wait to buy real estate. Buy real estate and wait." Now is a great time to move-up or buy-in, fix-up, and hold for the next 5-7 years. You should do fine.

A-h-h-h-h-h! Give hem an offer. It might be the best offer they have had in a year.

This market is really slow. Not many transactions going on.

I an not an expert on Turlock. But I am a property owner in Turlock.

I absolutely have my eye on the market.

Give it your best shot.
