The recent comparable home sale's six month back preferably two to three months, apples to apples comparison, one mile from subject property or less is what the home is worth at that time the appraisal is done. Fred is right most recent selling prices. Not just Strongsville every local community.
Are you looking at foreclosures or short sale homes in Strongsville? These type sales are a seller's market within a buyer's market, buyer's are in multiple bid situations on these. or the case of short sales last buyer to hang in there get's it..
Hope you have some good luck soon and find the right home.
All the best,

Are the homes SELLING for those prices?
In general, they are worth what they are currently Selling for, not what people are asking for them.
Best wishes to you,
