The home has been on the market since April of last year and was originally listed for $359,000.
The price has progressively come down since then, with the latest reduction from $269,900 to $249,900 on 12/4/08
According to the tax records, the current owners purchased the home in 2003 for $235,000. Again, according to tax records, the home is 2,518 square feet on .4 acres. The tax records are often correct...but not always, so we have to confirm any information there. Last sale price is typically reliable, if listed in tax records.
According to the selling agent, the current owners have protested the 2007 taxes of $7,322.
The home is also currently for rent for $1,495 per month.
Be sure to work with a Realtor representing YOU in the transaction and NOT the seller. The seller's agent works for the seller and is bound by law and by a code of ethics to disclose only information the seller wants you to know (unless the seller's agent knows about a material defect in the property, then they must disclose even it the seller doesn't want it disclosed). The buyer's agent works for the buyer and has no obligation to the seller. If you are preparing to purchase a home, find a buyer's agent who is knowledgable about the local market and has access to all of the market data to fairly assess the value and resellability of the home. You'll end up getting the best home at the best price!
Good house hunting!
