The agent should be able to provide you with details regarding this matter and in as much as he should be able to tell you how long has the house been in the market to give you an idea on how far can you negotiate. Furthermore, the condition and location of the house also have a bearing on what the price will be. Usually, houses located near establishments costs higher while houses that are somewhat far from the city cost less.

2. What Is The Condition Of The House?
