In order to establish a current value, one needs to be aware of comps--recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--after reviewing the data a determination as to a fair price can be made--keep in mind that the previous sale price really has no bearing in today's market--what is your agent advising....

The previous sales price has no bearing on the price today. The rental income the property is generating, or is capable of generating, should be used to determine an asking price on a multi-family dwelling. It should be compared to other, similar income properties (if any). Any obvious repairs should be accounted for to come up with an offer price.

Income properties are often more difficult to price, and the market for them is significantly smaller than for residential properties. It's especially true these days, when it is harder for an investor to get financing.

If you're working with a real estate agent, you could ask them to research comparable properties and find out what they are renting for and what condition they are in.

Good luck!
