question of sale price

1 Reply

Say a property I'm looking at is one of a few that Joe Builder/Investor has recently built and sold.  They are all exactly the same duplex and he asks X amount for them all he says. Is there anyway I can see what he ACTUALLY sold his last property or two at to have a better idea of what he will most likely come down to?

Any realtor should be able to get actual sales prices for you off MLS - you just need the addresses of the ones you want to compare. If there are sub markets in your area, the same house design could sell at a different price point just a few blocks away. The realtor should also be able to check what other duplexes are selling for near the one you are interested in. The closest comparable sales are more important than his usual price.
