Well, big suggestion first of all, if you are interested in buying a property you should do so with the support, expertise and assistance of your own Buyers Agent / Realtor, in most if not all cases they are
paid by the seller's side at the closing table, and their professional services are free to the buyer, but
do not forget YOUR loyalty and total commitment to just one Realtor, your Buyers Agent is required.
But the advantages are numerous!!! Do not do this on your own, and when you find a property with the
help of your Realtor or because you see it somewhere else, your Buyers Agent will check if it is still available, if they are already negotiating with another buyer, and will provide you with comparable properties to the one you intend to make an offer on and discuss in detail with you how to proceed during the negotiations with the seller/seller's agent on your behalf.
If you just want to have an app. idea of where the asking price and the sale prices are in the area
there is a list and map at the end of a trulia listing so just scroll down, but remember only a local experienced Realtor will be able to put together competing properties, and those sold that are as
close as possible to the property in question, by making adjustments to those properties, so that you
will have a real comparison and will be comfortable with your initial purchase price offer, but also will
know how far you will be ready to negotiate to stay within the real market value.....
If you need a recommendation for your area of interest, let me know and I gladly forward a recommendation for a good Buyers Agent to you.
