Home value questionWe are bidding on a home listed at $325K that is priced $60K over fair market value and $40K over the comps. The seller claims that the reason for the inflated price is due to the upgrades they did themselves like finished bonus room above garage, patio with fence/masonry and built in grill, a lawn sprinkler system, and landscaping. In all they are claiming the upgrades are worth $55K but there was no building permits pulled since the home was built in 2005. My question is: what percent of the upgrades should the seller expect to get back in the sale of the home and why?July 20 2011 - Oshkosh00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
