Getting an appraisal from J & A Appraisals, LLC before putting your Arapahoe County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. 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 an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of CO 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, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
