How much should I offer on this home? You never need to wonder how we came up with our suggested offer price, as we show you the math! For each home you are interested in, we will deliver an analysis of the comparable sales on a detailed spreadsheet that shows you just how your prospective home compares to the recent sales, and how much monetary value is placed on each of the differences. We do not rely upon the price-per-square-foot figure, as it does not take into account important qualitative factors, like the condition, view, layout, noise, light or outdoor space. Our advice is based on a detailed analysis of the historic data mixed with an understanding of the current market and competitive environment. For us, comps are a both art and science.

We’re not just reading what is written, we are also reading between the lines, paying attention for vague wording that could be misinterpreted, looking for contradictory information, and drawing upon our years of experience to know when something just doesn’t add up. Here are some real-world examples of things we have discovered from our disclosure reviews:
