How do I compare cost of various number of bedrooms and bathrooms?

Asked by Knikki2000, 60076 Mon May 13, 2013

We are looking to buy the house we are renting and are trying to determine a fair price to offer for the home. It is a 2 bed, 1 bath, on slab with a detached garage.

I have been trying to look at properties sold recently in our area and am having a hard time.

Most are 3 bedroom 2 bath, many have finished basements, some have attached garages.

How much value does a 3rd bed room, 2nd bathroom, basement (finished or otherwise), attached vs detached garage, etc. add to a home?

2 bedroom freestanding homes are a rarity. Older comps in the MLS will be your best source for a starting point. Once you determine if an agent will help you in the process, they will be able to research the information necessary and advise you accordingly.

You need a good real estate agent. I can refer you to several if you would like. Happy hunting!
