Thought it might be useful for those of you heading out here to know that real estate works a little differently over here. If you are browsing realestate.com for houses and ideas of price please bear this in mind:
When a house is advertised as 'offer over $360,000' or '$360+' you need to add 10% to the price. Pretty much all the agents we have spoken to work on a +10% basis. Obviously in the UK you go in low and work up to the asking price, so it is pretty different and does alter the ACTUAL price you can buy the properties for.
Hope this is helpful to someone!:)
