You might be wondering how to “Sell my home in Colorado Springs“.   Read on to discover some of my thoughts on the matter.

As a homeowner, you have two ways for determining the true value of your home when trying to decide to sell your home.  First one is you might need to get an appraisal.  The appraisal is done by a licensed appraiser. 

In El Paso County or Colorado Springs there are a lot of good appraisers.  They will charge you between $350 and $500 to do an accurate evualtion.  The second way to determine value to ask a Real Estate agent in Colorado Springs.  A Realtor can run what is called a CMA or Competitive Market Analysis.

Competitive Market Analysis

A CMA is a report that shows the home that most represent your type of home and what they sold for.  Eric Richards, a Colorado Springs Realtor takes it one step further.   He will help you get your home ready to sell!

He will give you 2 hours free of charge and take you into these homes that are your potential competition.  Seeing the competition might make you think twice about the perceived value and what your home actually could sell for. Often times it is higher than what you think.  Also using Eric Richards to do a valuation is great way to meet and interview him.

How does Eric value a home? 

It all has to do with what the buyer wants, not what the seller thinks the buyer wants.  You love your new shag carpeting and that is great.  However some buyers might not.   This is how you “sell my home in Colorado Springs

Eric usually will recommend a more homogenized approach.  Make it look like a new build.  $500 in paint and a weekend of painting with a nice neutral paint can easily add $5000 in sale price or decrease your Days On Market by 50%. 

-

The features used and installed should be fitting of the neighbor.  No chrome rims on a Pinto!  Seriously.  Granite Counter tops have no place in a $110,000 home* The feautes need to make sense dollar wise as well. 

-

Eric recommends a 15% rule for upgrades.  Meaning you can spend 15% of your homes value in upgrades.  Thats it.  Ever!  Put the rest of that money into the mortgage.

  After making your updates, Eric can easily tell you what the home is worth.  See his article on fix and flips.  Real homes Eric has bought and sold.

We look at homes that are the same and compare them.  Think about the homes you look at when it is time buy!  If you love one, but dislike the next one and they are priced the same, that might be your home.  Take the emotions out the transactions.  Except at the closing table.
