Accurate Inspections & Consulting answered:
Even though it is a buyers market, it is prudent to be reasonable in making an offer. Some buyers tend to think they can 'steal' a house because of a poor market. A lot of houses in this market tend to be priced well if someone actually wants to sell. Starting out at 10% below list should put in in a reasonable ballpark. I would suggest thinking about what price you want to end up at after negotiations back and forth.
If brand new on the inside it will be important to get a good home inspection to see if rehab work was done properly. Also not sure what 'long time' means but a) a long time on the market isn't that unusual these days; b) this could be an indicator that there are issues with the home.
I was just over at 115th/Kedzie washing my car last week.

Frank Dolski answered:
Dear Chelley,
My name is Frank Dolski and I am Associate Broker at Coldwell Banker Hearthside Realtors in Lahaska, PA. (near Philadelphia) As a Certified CARTUS Relocation Specialist and through our corporate resources, I have the ability to refer the top Agent/Broker in any given area of the U.S. and abroad. We are one of only 8% of the Brokers nationwide with this expansive capability. So, I can definitely assist you in locating as many agents for you to interview so that you can make an educated decision based on their presentations. I just help a former client from the Pennsylvania area that had difficulty selling their home in Chesterfield, MI and also helped them on their move to North Carolina. They happily settled on both homes in early august of 2010.
I actually interview the Broker/Agent well before I refer them to you. I have been very successful in referring people and have numerous recommendations from previous clients as well as new ones who look for assistance. Please feel free to email or call me at your convenience or visit my website. I have been either the top or second producing Realtor out of our 20 franchised for the past 4 years. I mention this because I have been very successful in this industry. I wish you luck in your search and I do encourage you to contact me.
Best Regards,
Frank Dolski MBA, ABR, e-PRO
