I am a beginning real estate investor and do not want to come off as inexperienced when I interact with the seller. The property in question is a lot with a burned house that needs to be cleared. I will be assigning the sales contract to a rehabber/developer and taking a middleman’s fee. The 2007 tax assessor’s value of it was $ 108,000. Average home sales in the town for 2008 are at $ 241,000. A house on the same block in the same neighborhood recently sold for $ 203,000. How much should I ask, considering the demolition costs (of perhaps $ 5K)? How should I be prepared to interact with the owner/seller?
