Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Michael Manley Appraisals LLC.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract 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
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
