I've noticed that three houses have recently come to market on the same street, in an area that we are consideing buying in. Normally seeing several propeties for sale in the same street would set my alarm bells ringing, but as it's a rather long street i'm not overly concerned.

what i can't quite figure out is why the houses (which from the details on rightmove seem similar in size) are on at such a wide range of prices. I'm inclined towards the cheapest one which needs a bit of modernisation (double glazing, new kitchen and bathoom, decoration) which is on at £114k. However there is a very similar house which has been done up nicely on at £117k. The third house, which has also been modernised but is similar in size, is on for around £140k. Nothing is mentioned in the description of the cheaper two about them being priced for a quick sale

Although we plan on staying in the house we buy for many years to come, I'd want to be sure that we get a fairly priced house (or as close as you can get in the present maket!). How do i check what houses in the road have sold for previously, to see if this price seems fair?
