Todays question of the day is: "There is a home i am interested in making an offer on, i know they only paid $100,000 8 years ago, they have not made any improvements, should i offer them $100,000 now ofr this house?"You should not be looking at what someone paid for a property when calculating what you want to offer. Just as well, you should not be basing your offer on any percentage off of their asking price as you do not know if that asking price is what that home is worth.The only factor that really matters is what it is worth in todays market in the condition it is currently in. You need to assess what the house is worth in todays market. If you are experienced you can do it yourself or you can simply have an agent complete a broker price opinion. Once you know what the house is worth in todays market, you can make an educated offer.
if you are not experienced, You may want to hire a buyer broker, you can usually do so at no cost to you, they get paid their commission from the fee advertsised in MLS by the listing agent and paid at closing.Blog Updated Sept. 13, 2010Blog Written by:Scott GodzykOwner/BrokerGodzyk Realty GroupManchester NH
