I want to add one more thing. A real estate agent will give you market information to make an informed decision.
What other homes are selling for in the area will give you a better idea the market value and maybe the offer you would like make on the property. Knowing the market value of a home will also prepare you for your loan appraisal. Values are fluctuating monthly right now. Some up some down. It is what you fell it is worth but it is also a loan to value issue if financing a home, which most people do.
I grew up in Woodlynne ,of course I am now 51, It was a close town where everyone knew everyone and their business. I mean that to be funny and serious.
