Putting a house on the market in or near Jefferson County? Contact PR Appraisal Services, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. Technically, something is only worth what another person is willing to pay.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of Colorado homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at your 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have originally netted. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while getting nothing done.
