Getting an appraisal from Tri-County Appraisals before putting your Larimer County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

More and more CO homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, 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 explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an inflated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
