Yet, the goal should be to acquire a property for a reasonable price (sometimes that price is a severely discounted price--due to the shape of the property), and to do something constructive with it.
The property you spoke of is not on the market--I have checked the MLS. But there are 3 other properties in that block priced from 165K to 300K. If you would like details please contact me directly and I will send on to you. As far as negotiating a price,this is where the advantage of working with an agent came in. An experienced agent can ehlp you to get the best price and do the negotiating for you. And remember--it costs you nothing to get an agent. We are paidby the seller at the time of closing.
