Is there a place I can find the average per sqft for homes in a certain area?

I am looking to gain info about the average $ per sqft on single fam homes in Commerce Twp. MI 48382. I am looking to buy a house in this area. Is $105 per sqft to much?

After viewing a few homes in your target areas, with the help of a Realtor, you will know if a house is over-priced or not. It is very hard to figure dollar per sft without seeing what is currently available and selling.

Wetdaws has answered the question. Please be aware that the size listed for both the lot and the home may be inaccurate; homes change over time, sellers incorrectly communicate the sizes, etc. Before you buy make sure you independently verify the size of the property.

I suggest you get out there and see a number of homes on the market. An average price per square foot in your target area will not factor in things like the age of the home, updates and special features, etc. A qualified local Realtor can help you analyze the square footage price for the particular type of home you are looking to purchase. You can then use that info to determine if the price you are hoping to pay is within reason.

Hello, Review multiple sold properties in your area in the last 90 days and ask a realtor to do this for you and to conduct a detailed CMA. Hope this helps.

The best way to find out the average per square foot is to have a Realtor conduct a CMA.  We factor in the recent sales, pending homes and those currently on market to obtain an average square foot value.  $105 per square foot is not unreasonable depending on the area in Commerce that you want.  Commerce is in the lakes area and the average for lake front homes will be different for non lake front homes.  

Hope this helps!

I understand what you are saying. I was curious if the info was available to help in my search. I will try talking to a couple of local people to get the specifics of what I am asking. Thanks.

Yes, there is a place where you can find the information.  Please click here (or click on "local info" in the top line).    However, please be aware that houses are not purchased "per square foot" but as a unit and so there are many factors that will affect the $/sq foot.

Good Evening,

With all respect, a buyer is not going to determine "what constitutes a good deal" from a computer averaging out data. You either need to view a significant number of comparable properties and then see what they eventually close for, and/or work with a good buyer's agent who is familiar with the area with a intimate understanding of recent sales and trends. Style, age, size, condition, location, school district, etc., all play huge factors in determining whether a property is a rip-off or a steal. There are simply too many variables involved to determine a market value from a couple of data points.
