It also is possible to do your own cost comparison through researching comparable properties recorded at local county recorder's and assessor's offices, or through Internet sites specializing in property records.
(Beware: internet or "online evaluations" as they're called, can be as much as 20% off both high and low because there is is no one there adding or subtracting value for missing amenities, property condition, and improvements. This is the type of subjective analysis that only a REALTOR can do.)
