Selling your home in or near Larimer County? Contact Tri-County Appraisals and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of CO homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
