Fair Market Value is defined as, what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to sell for in an arm's length transaction given adequate exposure to the open market. The most important factors in determining value are the location of the property, the amount of square footage, and the finishes and features of the home. Determining the value of these elements is done by examining other recently sold properties in the area. I use many tools and data sources to come to a value range for your property. We discuss your needs in regards to the transaction, and decide on strategies for listing and negotiating together.

Determining Value

The Home Selling Process

In the Colorado residential resale market, the Contract to Buy and Sell favors the buyer. Prioritizing and protecting the seller's interests is one important reason to hire a REALTOR®. Selling your home is a BIG deal - why wouldn't you use a professional?

The real estate transaction from contract to closing includes:

  • Inspecting the property
  • Reviewing the title documents
  • Evaluating the property appraisal
  • Reviewing the HOA documents
  • Purchasing hazard insurance
  • Evaluating the property survey
  • Obtaining a loan if the purchase will be financed

For many transactions, the seller and the buyer are each represented by their own agent advocate. In some instances, the deal can be handled for both parties by a Transaction Broker, who is a neutral facilitator. The agents involved split a commission, which is typically a percentage of the sales price. In Colorado, the commission is almost always paid by the Seller.

Dealerships know that a “certified pre-owned vehicle” gives a car buyer more assurance with it's added certification and warranty. Performing an inspection on your home before listing gives potential buyers more peace of mind, sets a good tone for negotiations, and sometimes results in a higher sales price.

As the seller, conducting your own inspection is a valuable tool in defending your asking price, and can reduce the number of items that may come up on the Inspection Objection. Remember, if
you find it, you can repair
it; if the buyer finds it, you
get to replace it!  And
should the deal fall
through to unforeseen
inspection items, having
to come back on the
market again loses
precious showing time,
especially in off-peak
times of the year.
