What did this house sell for?

Answer
Depending on when it sold, agents are not able to give out that information until after it closes. You can check the local assessors office online to see what it sold for, its public record

First time homebuyers need help deciding how to finance duplex

Answer
I would definitely talk to your tax professional to see what your best option would be. One thing to consider is what interest rate are you making on your money and what interest rate would you be getting on your home loan.Best wishes to you!

What about new construction listed with an agency?

Answer
Steve,Great questions! Always use your own agent to represent you as a Buyers Agent. All agents can show any home on the market even one that is listed with a builder, for sale by owner or another agency. Wisconsin contracts have a clause for dual agency so its not necessary that you put that in the contract as long as you initial the proper lines, however if this is not covered in your state then definitely add that to the contract.Best wishes for a smooth purchase.

Pricing hike from 85 to 136?!

Response
I agree that offering the $85,000 price sounds fair, I hope your working with a Buyers agent that will negotiate on your behalf. One more thing to remember when buying a home that has sat on the market for that long probably has more problems than the eye can see. Is it really worth it to you buying a home as is and not knowing what you might be up against?Good luck to you
