With this being said it is priced at 225000 right now. It has been on the market for over 65 days, vacant for about 1.5 yrs and the price has already come down 25,000 in 65 days. It needs new windows, completely new kitchen, all appliances, new garage door, paint, flooring, possible major plumming, pool deck needs refinished, pool needs re surfaced. Average home price in neighborhood is 180 to 206,000. Home is appraised around 175,000 according to zillow and trulia. Am I hoping for something that is completely crazy or have a point? My agent is not very helpful at pulling comps or giving much advice about this home, which is in Saint Petersburg, Florida.<br \><br \>8 replies Tue, 05 Aug 2014 04:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-I-bid-40-000-under-asking-price-for-a-foreclosure/553129/ 2014-08-05T04:12:00Z PLE http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/PLE/551953/ please let me know how to get an estimate of our home's current market value from ZILLOW, and if it can be listed with your firm for a short sale proposition/and combined wih us being the renters /source of rental contract for the same home.<br/>BEN J.
