Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Pinnacle Appraisals, INC. will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays you in the long run! Unless a 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've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. After all, a home is only worth the price another person is going to pay.

Selling on your own?

More and more Colorado homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a sound asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide
It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of sitting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while getting nothing done.
