Getting an appraisal from 1 Valuations before putting your Monument home on the market saves you time and money.

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

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few 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, quickly and to get the most you can, 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 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 sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated 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 sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
