Kathy, This is a lovely home but one of the issues with it is the location. You have to want to be in the snow zone. If you don't mind the snow then you are only about 25 minutes from Ashland and it is a lovely property. "Fair" offering price is a hard one. In this market the price that a seller will take is dependent on their need to sell. In a normal market in our area, homes usually sell for 97% to 98% of the asking price at the time of the sale. In the current market we are seeing things sometimes going for 90% of the asking price. I would have an agent like myself (or who ever you may be working with) do a market analysis and then go in with what you are comfortable with and see what kind of response you get.
