Do you take age of windows/roof/etc. into consideration
We are interested in a home that is 27 years old. Original windows (all huge and custom sizes), wood shake roof, gutters, furnace/ac, etc. The real estate agent assures us everything is in great shape and has been serviced twice a year (we would get an inspection). That said, things only last so long before they must be replaced and all of those things are pretty much at the end of their life. The house also needs a gut job for bathrooms/kitchen/etc which are all original. It is an estate sale. The lot is my dream lot. A double heavily treed lot, hence why I'm interested. They were offered $70k below list and did not counter, just rejected. I guess my question is, do I offer $50k under list and see if they take it, has been on the market for 5 months with only 1 offer as mentioned.
