What’s your home worth?

Get A Market Analysis

Accoring to Wikipedia: Real estate appraisalproperty valuation or land valuation is the process of developing an opinion of value, for real property (usually market value). Real estate transactions often require appraisals because they occur infrequently and every property is unique (especially their condition, a key factor in valuation), unlike corporate stocks, which are traded daily and are identical (thus a centralized Walrasian auction like a stock exchange is unrealistic). The location also plays a key role in valuation. However, since property cannot change location, it is often the upgrades or improvements to the home that can change its value. Appraisal reports form the basis for mortgage loans, settling estates and divorces, taxation, and so on. Sometimes an appraisal report is used to establish a sale price for a property.

PACKING TIPS

 

There are a lot of little things you can do when packing to help save yourself from a lot of stress. Here’s just a few!

PACK A MOVING SURVIVAL KIT

Z

Asprin

Z

Coffee, filters, and coffee maker

Z

Paper cups and plates, plastic utensils

Z

Paper towels, toilet paper, soap

Z

Water, sunglasses and chapstick, no matter the season – stay hydrayed in Colorado!

PACKING HACKS

Z

Keep jewelry, important papers or medications with you

Z

Label boxes as you pack them with content and desired room location

Z

Leave lamps, china and artwork or breakables for movers to pack

Z

Pack heavy items in small boxes.

Z

Do not over-stuff boxes; leave some extra room at the top

Z

Tape cords underneath all electrical appliances

Z

Wrap breakables in newspaper, bubble wrap, clothes or towel

Z

Use RED packing tape for critical boxes you want to unpack first

Z

Put plastic wrap over drawers so you don’t have to empty out their contents.

Z

Pack plates vertically so they’re less likely to break. Make sure you wrap them well!

Z

Don’t take clothes off their hangers. Move them in bunches in garbage bags still on the hangers. Easy and way cheaper than wardrobe boxes.

Z

Color code each box according to room so you can identify what needs to go where in a glance.

Z

Add some padding to your boxes. Plastic grocery bags are great for cushioning your breakables. Don’t leave room at the top without padding because otherwise they may get crushed.

Z

Remember to mark boxes with breakables as fragile. Whether you’ve hired movers or are doing it yourself, you don’t want someone to be too rough with those boxes.

Z

Cut triangles in boxes about 1/3 of the way down to create handles for easy carrying

Why Use a REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL

This, too, may seem counterintuitive. The seller may believe that he or she will make more money without having to pay a real estate commission, but studies have shown that homes typically sell for more money when handled by a real estate professional.

Research by the National Association of Realtors in their 2018 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers revealed that,

“the median selling price for all FSBO homes was $200,000 last year. However, homes that were sold with the assistance of an agent had a median selling price of $264,900 – nearly $65,000 more for the typical home sale.”

We realize that technology has changed the purchaser’s behavior during the home buying process. According to the National Association of Realtors’ latest Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers, the percentage of buyers who used the internet in their home search increased to 95%.

What every BUYER
should KNOW

P

Property taxes and qualified home interest are deductible on an individual’s federal income tax return in most cases.

P

Many times, a home is the largest asset an individual has and is considered one of the safest investments available.

P

A homeowner can exclude up to $500,000 of capital gains if married filing jointly or up to $250,000 if single or married filing separately. The home must have been the taxpayer’s principal residence for two of the last five years.

P

A portion of each amortized mortgage payment goes toward the principal, which is an investment.

P

A home is one of the few investments you can enjoy by living in it!

P

The majority of the time, a REALTOR® can show you any home, whether it is listed with a company or a builder or is even a For Sale By Owner.

P

Working with a REALTOR® to purchase a For Sale By Owner property is very advantageous, because someone will be looking out for your best interests.

P

Getting pre-qualified by a mortgage company will actually approve you for a specific loan amount subject to the property. This will give you confidence and will help when negotiating with the seller.

P

The right to conduct a property inspection, included in your purchase agreement, gives you the ability to negotiate with the seller once you know all the facts about the property’s condition.

P

In a “seller’s market,” don’t go looking for a deal. Set your sights on the right house for you, and then let your REALTOR help you negotiate the best price and terms.
