Can anyone help me in deciding how much to offer on a house I am considering buying?

The women paid 66.000 in 1980 added a garage in 1994 for $5500 and really hasn't done any updating to the home since. It really needs updating ! The heated sq ft is 1,841

It seems that we all agree that you need a Buyer Agent.  Please, click on my photo and let me know the city, your tel and email address and I will put you in touch with a realtor who can assist you in this very serious decision.

This question should be answered by your realtor!  If you don't have one i may be able to recommend one.  Please let me know what city the home is in.

I know of the perfect person to help you decide on an offer...

Your Buyers agent (lol)

the fact that she paid $66k for the home in 1994 has no bearing on anything thing unfortunately. Homes sell based on what the market dictates and some times a few other factors. You stated it needs updating. What are other homes in the area selling for? What is the owner asking for it? What terms are you both offering?
