All of the raised ranch sq.ft. is not valued the same. The upper level sq.ft. is given a higher value than the lower level - even if the lower level is finished. (In the past 20 years that I have been a licensed real estate agent in CT this has always been the case). As for the ranch- all of the sq.ft. will be valued the same because it is all above grade. The unfinished basement will be a deduction if the subject house has a finished basement - I believe in this example that the subject house is the raised ranch with a finished basement. The ranch will be given value for 2.5 baths- the raised ranch has fewer bathrooms and that will be a deduction. Size of bedrooms rarely adds value nor do walk in closets and double closets- although they contribute to overall sq.ft. and that does affect value. ... more

The Best Way to keep up with the changes on properties
is to work with a Realtor, have them save a search for you,
then you will be notified by email within minutes of the price changes
as well as new listings that come on
Hope that answers your question.
Also if I can be of any service to you,
please feel free to give me a call.
I would be happy to help.

I know you want a number but it's near impossible to give you one. Here's why.
Prices depend upon a number of things with location traditionally being a huge factor. Other considerations are regions within the country, counties in a state etc. And then there is always the condition of the house and any environmental issues that exist. Being a 1955 house one of the first things one would look at is lead paint and/or asbestos, and the potential remediation cost.
If you have specifics on the more major factors your agent should at least be able to get you a range of prices.... and the caveat is it will be an estimate without a visit or some previous knowledge on the property. Sorry I couldn't be more exact for you.

I reside and work, in Connecticut. However, I can suggest that you can go to the town hall and look up the past sales in your development. If you haven't time to do that, call a local Realtor and ask for her assistance. Good luck! ... more
