Jay, Check your agreement and let your agent know about the home you found. Your agent can talk to this seller and might be able to get the seller to pay his/her commission. A good agent will easily be able to show how valuable their expertise is, and hopefully the seller will see the value in having your agent represent you as a client, and assist the seller as a customer to get everyone to the closing table. If your agent represents you, they will fight to get you the deal, at, or below, market value.

I am in Georgia where customarily, the seller pays the real estate commission. However, everything is negotiable. Hope that helps and Good Luck.

You are always welcome to make an offer and count on your agent to present and negotiate your offer properly.

The village areas called Mystic actually belong to TWO towns: Groton & Stonington. Go to my web site & click links for each of those town websites to check with Education Depts. or schools. Ask Supt. offices to provide the info you need. or contact me. I live in Mystic, on the Stonington side of the river! ... more

Mystic is located in the towns of Stonington and Groton. Mystic is actually a fire district and village but taxing is done at the town level as are the services other than what is provided by the state highway dept. The budgets for both towns are readily available for downloading and reading off line. Houses are varied in prices a great deal depending on how far from the water they are. There are public beaches in both towns and RI only 15 to 45 minutes away has some epic ones. There is a YMCA and lots of after school programs last I looked though my kids are in their 30's now. It seems rather obvious that if you live in a town and pay the taxes to support the school system you voted for good or bad that yes that is the one you are going to have to use unless you pay additional money to another district. Like any other town as well the schools are as good as the parents have done raising their kids to behave and be motivated to learn. You can not motivate kids with higher taxes it is learned at home. ... more

Two is not enough.

The appraisal form has four columns, Subject and three comparables. That is four properties to compare not two.

CMA - same thing, at least three comparables.

If you can't find two more then you have to go upsize, downsize, out of area, or out of time and make adjustments. But you have to find two more. Then you can go back to best comparable and state why its the best comparable and why you are using the data from it to determine the value, and not relying so much on the other two.
