This seems a bit high for the area -- also, it's been listed for quite a while. Why hasn't it sold?

Dear Suzanne,

If your sense if that the price of the listing is high for the area, then you can probably easily find (or have a Realtor find for you) substantial evidence to support whatever an appropriate price range is for the property. The average price point for all multi units within a half mile of the property is closer to around $200,000.00, although there are a couple of units under contract for around $500,000.00.

If you do not yet have a real estate agent, then you should know before you commit to working with someone specific that generally speaking (with some possible exceptions) the agent who walks in with you to see any property for the first time will "by default" become you real estate agent (at least for this property)- unless you have a written agreement with a different agent who you have already designated as your real estate agent. If that is the case and you'd like to continue to work with your own designated agent, then you should contact your agent to arrange a showing/viewing of this property for you.

Again if you do not yet have a real estate agent- I would suggest speaking with multiple agents before you make a choice on whom you'd like to work with, and I would not necessarily rule out people who have responded to your request here. These agents tend to be pretty technologically up to date (compared to the vast majority of Realtors), and as a result they can often respond to requests more quickly.

I have also included some links on how to choose a Realtor if you are just starting out whether you are buying or selling.
