When you talk about comps;it shoud be done by real estate a professional,because it neeeds knowledge and experience. plus a professional has a larger data base.

If you aren't working with a Realtor now is the time to consider using their services not only for accurate comps but also current information. However, if you interested in recent closed properties in any area check out MLSLI.com under closed properties, under the area.

Don't rely on Zillow for accurate comps. It is a guideline at best. You really need to get an agent to show you comps. Then take the whole picture into consideration. If you offer foreclosure pricing on a non-foreclosure, you risk offending the seller. However, you can offer anything you want. The worst thing a seller can say is no.

You can certainly use those comps to justify a lower offer. In my experience, negotiations go the smoothest when we have the numbers to back up our offers. Your agent can present your offer in a way that shows you want to pay fair market value and not move into a house with negative equity.
