Have your REA:LTOR pull the SOLD comps in the same area if possible, try to verify that the properties are very similar in size, age, condition, etc. Is the home for you residence? If so, then remember most people purchase a home once or twice in their lifetimes, and you usually will be gaining equity for quite sometime. Also, do your inspections and review all disclosures with your agent. This is how you know if your offer is too high or too low "for you".
