Ron Thomas answered:
The proper procedure is to enlist a Realtor, (a Buyer's Agent is free to you),
The Agent does a CMA to determine the Market Value.
Together, you make up an OFFER,
you include Contingencies for INSPECTION, APPRAISAL and LOAN;
so that you are protected.
Even if the property is sold As-Is, you can back out because of the Contingencies.
If you do not have CONTINGENCIES, and you have signed a CONTRACT; you are buying the house!
Just one of the reasons for using a Realtor.

It means that you could be buying a headache.

It likely won't be approved for any financing, seller will make no repairs and the seller will not disclose anything about the home or it's condition. This is completely buyer beware.

Beware. I cannot stress the importance of getting a solid agent and inspector for something like this.

John Anthony Alcantar answered: is a free real estate search site, designed to let you see what's for sale in Bonaire, and surrounding parts, just like the realtors.
There's a brief 3-4 minute video there, explaining the bells and whistles.
If you haven't already, contact a local realtor/lender.
Also, don't be afraid to look at homes outside your price range, and write low ball offers. You never know what might happen....

I have searched your local MLS and the longest day on the market was 196 days, the shortest was 18. The longest was a home that was the highest priced. I searched for the homes in Aspen Woods that have had activity on it since October of last year.
If you would like for me to give you an average price and further information on your neighborhood please feel free to contact me at

Thank you. Terri Jackson-Realtor
