Did the realtor say it was up to you because she/he also represents the seller? Either way, that is not good advice. Try finding yourself an exclusive buyer broker. They will do a complete valuation of the property and tell you what it is worth in the current market and then you can make offers accordingly. You hire a realtor (professional) to help guide you in every way throughout the process not to tell you "it's up to you." They are getting paid to work on your behalf so make them :)
In regards to a good price for the property, it loos like #43 (which is a 3 bed/2 full bath and 1 half bath TH) was listed for $299,999 and is already under agreement which is a $100,000 less than what #45 (similar square footage and also a 3 bed/2 full bath and 1 half bath TH) is listed at, $399,900. #43 sale will definitely have an impact on the value of #45.
Over the last year 4 condo townhouses have sold in The Villages complex and here are the average sale statistics:
Avg.Square Feet: 1,531.25
Avg. List Price: $396,725
Avg. Sale Price: $386,500
Avg. Days on Market: 58.25
Avg. Sale Price/SqFt: $254
1 of those TH's was only 2bed/1 full bath & 1 half bath (cheapest)
1 was 3bed/2 full bath & 1 half bath (most expensive)
2 of the TH's were 2bed / 2 full bath & 1 half bath
**Also important to note is that the above sales were in much nicer/more upgraded condition than #45 so that should also be calculated into overall value.
The condo fees are high because it includes all the amenities and maintenance of the complex: Water, Sewer, Swimming Pool, Exterior Maintenance, Road Maintenance, Landscaping, Tennis Court, Clubroom, Garden Area
