That's a huge tree! It's not going to be cheap, but it will probably raise your property values to have something like that removed. I'd call around a few difference companies and have them give you estimates. Then you can decide who to go with from there. http://www.brandywinetree.net/... more
Are you asking how much should you make an offer for? Have you seen the property yet? If you would like I can set up a showing for you and bring along some comparable sales so you can have an educated idea of where to start in terms of offer to purchase.
I'm curious what decision you ended up making with regards to 13 Elaine Drive in Milford. Did the responses on this site help you? How can I learn from your overall experience. I am of the mind that my opinion about the house and it's value may be potentially helpful but is not nearly important as understanding your perspective about the house and really taking your concerns into account.
