The house you are referencing has taxes of $28,889.49. Perhaps you might share where you are getting your $70k tax information so we might all understand what you are referencing.

Without more specific information, cannot even give you a neighborhood idea. Value has become very local due to the current financial atmosphere.

If you provide an address, I can give you a neighborhood range which will give you the lowest and the highest.

If you want something more accurately appropriate to your home, I can pay a visit and give you a much more accurate number.

I both live and work in the area. You can contact me at if you wish this complimentary service; absolutely no obligations inferred.

While I cannot speak for Long Island, it is typical practice to have a listing agreement to represent a seller (seller's agent). An exclusive right to buy, aka buyer rep agreement, is a fairly standard practice and is even required in some states.
A buyer rep agreement defines the ways in which your agent will work for you and you can typically add stipulations to that agreement including that they actively search for FSBO properties, etc. Keep in mind that if NY is a state that does not REQUIRE these agreements, it may not be a bad idea to check with a few other buyer agents. Checking out the REBAC website ( and find an ABR (Accredited Buyer Rep) or just look for someone that has ABR on their card :-)
The ABR means they took a few extra classes on dealing with buyer related issues and may be slightly more qualified to help you if a buyer rep agreement is necessary.

Agency relationships also vary from state to state, but you can see a very basic overview of agency relationships by visiting one of my blog posts about them (in web reference below)

Hope this helps.
