You need to find out what other properties have sold in the same area with similar features. This would be a start. Then&nbsp;negotiation&nbsp;starts with the seller. Are you working with a buyer's agent to assist you with these issues? I highly&nbsp;recommend&nbsp;you find a agent to assist you if you have not. If the property is in my area I will be happy to assist. You can email me if you would like me to help with assistance in your real estate needs.

You could also email the listing agent asking them to contact you when the home goes active (50 / 50 chance of them getting back to you as they have MANY listings). Or you could get your own agent to set up an search on their local MLS system that would send you an email when the home goes active.
