Looking for a two family to purchase? If you have been looking then you know prices. If you do not know prices ask to see the last 4-6 sales of similar homes that already sold like the one you will see today. So if a home, a Two Family is listed at $949,000 asking, you will not insult the seller with a ridiculous offer like $775,000.
If this is the level you can afford, then you should be looking at 1 families for sale, not 2 families.
Do not waste your time, the owners time and the Real Estate agents time. Area discussing is Middle Village,NY.
Today nobody bids over $170,000 dollars below the asking price. You are not buying fruit. Homes in general sell within 3-7%of the asking price. Agents will stop taking you out to see homes if you continue to bid like this.
Agents showing a home should have a detailed data sheet prepared for the home being shown and including recently sold homes so the buyer is brought up to date on prices.
