I need to sell a house in Sarasota, Florida. We have been quoted from $80,000 to $240,000. The house needs cosmetic work, but is structurally sound. It has: new roof, siding, HVAC, water treatment, septic. The land is worth $80,000. Tax assessment value is $120,000. Comparables in this area go for $250,000 to $400,000. There are some millon dollar houses too.
Positives are: 1 acre of land, non-deed restricted, high-end neighborhood, no other houses or land in the area for sale.
Negatives: only two bedrooms, two stories, kitchen and bathrooms need renovation, wood framed construction.
So, where do I go from here? How do I figure out the value? Do I list with the people that think we can get $240,000? I have a lawyer and an accountant.
