Don Tepper answered:
Wrong question.

Don't worry about fairness. That's not a consideration.

Have an agent run a CMA on the property to determine what it's really worth in today's market, in its present condition. Then pay no more than that figure. Perhaps offer less; your agent can advise you on that.

But don't get misled or diverted by concerns about "fairness," whether that's applicable to you, the seller, or some vague concept.

Hope that helps.

For a builder today to specialize in just one type of construction is very rare (except for the production builders who specialize only in production homes). Many custom builders have expertise in various styles; the key is usually getting a good architect involved. Provident Builders has done work in many different areas, styles, etc. You can learn more about them at ... more

Hi uga1976,

Thanks for your question regarding safe areas. We get that a lot. I hope you do make it to Columbus and welcome! To me it's the best in the mid-west. Check out this web site may help answer your question: You can also call or visit the local law enforcement in the area and ask for crime statsitics. In fact I think if you just google " crime statistice" you can get to free sites that will give you that information.

Again , if you do decide to come here to work, welcome to Columbus. I hope this has helped you.

All the best,
Jeffrey Paeltz, ABR, SFR

Nice area. Seems to be holding value. FYI, Realtors cannot discuss demographics so you may have to find that information elsewhere.

No because anyone on the loan has to qualify. How low is low? Have you talked to a lender to get prequalified? Sometimes they can identify a few things you can do (like pay down, or pay off some debts) and do a rapid re-score. Good luck! ... more
