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's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few 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 to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool 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 problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it 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 waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
