Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from VolkHaus Appraisals.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of CO homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance 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, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months.
