What is a good site to find out what homes in your area sold for? I'm in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Answer
I know you probably don't want to hear this, but an agent with local MLS access is the best/most accurate way. It shouldn't be difficult to have somebody send over a sold report or comparables if that is what you are looking for.

Is it a good idea to offer a little more than the asking price when trying to buy a short sale home?

Answer
No not necessarily, are you pulling the tax records to show what the property had been assessed at? That may or may not be the current market value. In my area(southern cal) the only true way to set a value is by an appraisal.

Answer
Anything you can do to make your offer stand out is a good strategy, does the seller have lender approval on the price? If not you may be countered.

Buyer wants to rekey house before closing

Answer
Good call on saying no, Allowing the buyers to have access to the home without their agent present before they truly own it could open a can of worms.
