This should be handled by your attorney in the purchase and sales agreement. ... more

If it looks like a real contemporary you will have a tough time comping it out in any neighborhood. Most of the homes in the area are 100+ years old or constructed to look like that. You may want to reach out to some appraisers on this one.

Hi Suzanne,

The process of making an offer on a property involves many variables. What you need is an experienced Buyer Agent representing you to help evaluate these variable. There is no quick, rule of thumb way to do it. It involves comparable sales, days on market, your other terms, etc.

You will only buy or sell a few properties in your life - find someone who does it all the time to help you through this process.
