The house we’re looking at has been on the market for almost six months. There was a home open yesterday and we were literally the only people there. Clearly it isn’t selling and we’re concerned that if we put an offer in, we may be paying too much.
Do you know if there is a process whereby a person can get an independent evaluation on a property they’re considering for purchase before putting an offer in? We’re pretty much all set on funds after discussing with the bank manager last week but we’re hesitant about putting an offer in on the house we’re looking at after seeing it again now. We love the house but HATE the location and we all know real estate is about location, location, location! The house is on a corner but because of the type of corner it is, three sides of your house have roads at them (not particularly busy roads but roads nonetheless). Also, the footpath that goes past the backyard is high enough that someone can peer into the backyard but we think we'd apply to the council for a higher fence since it wouldn't affect anyone and it wouldn't affect our vision when pulling out of the house.
Anyway, does anyone know anything that might help? I'd really appreciate it!
