Help the community by answering this question:


If the property is expected to be sold in a good/finished condition, there is no discount there.
If the property won't be finished, you can call in your contractor and have him give you an estimate of work/materials needed to finish the property.
You can subtract that amount from the lower end (usually it is a range in pricing) of CMA results.
Often, the amount quoted by the contractor is underestimated - so you might want to subtract 25% more than the contractor's quote.

Hope this helps,

Find a good real estate agent that is willing to do a comparable market analysis. My guess is that the seller already took these unfinished projects into consideration when pricing the home.

I would answer two questions before making an offer. First, what will it be worth when finished? Secondly, how much is it going to cost me to finish it? Be realistic and allow for cost over-runs when you figure this. Then you will have the information needed to make a sensible offer.
