Either pay an appraiser or have a local realtor do it.

Pay a licensed appraiser to provide you a written value for your home. Then have a realtor provide you written sold comparables for your home. Explain to the agent they need to visit your home in addition to giving you comparables and that you are not selling your home. You may need to pay the realtor some money because they are spending time to do this for you and they don't work for free.

Bottom line - depending on your local court customs, some courts will accept a realtor's market analysis while other courts only recognize an appraiser. You need to find out which custom is used in your area.

Are you buying or selling? Either way, you really shouldn't rely on Trulia for anything. This site is notorious for having inaccurate, and outdated listings. And the search function seems to have a ton of bugs. If you're looking to buy or sell, your ONLY source of info should be your REALTOR who has access to the local MLS! ... more

Who are these people using the internet for "value calculations" and what are they doing with that information exactly? I don't know of any real-world situation where your made up internet value would mean anything so I'm seriously curious to know.

As far as I can tell, the only person who cares with Truzillow or any of these other random real estate sites thinks a house is worth is the person who actually owns the house in question. I've mostly looked mine up for a good laugh over the years because it has always been pretty darn wrong.

This is a tough one to break down. Basically the farther west and south you go, the cheaper it becomes. 80439 - aka Evergreen is home to many people who work in Denver. North Evergreen is more expensive for land. South Evergreen and West Evergreen are much cheaper. You might find an acre parcel in north Evergreen for 200k+, whereas 200k could buy you 5 acres the farther out you go. Land doesn't tend to sell very quickly except on the North side so there are opportunities depending on your price point and desired location.

I hope this helps.

Depending on where you are in Evergreen determines the drive to Denver. In most locations of Evergreen you can get to downtown in 30-45 minutes and its just about all highway. On your way back up to Evergreen the scenery is second to none with one of the state's most popular scenic overpasses. ... more

You can have either an oil-fired boiler or an oil-fired furnace. If it's a boiler, the home will have baseboard, radiator or radiant heat as the delivery method into each room of the home. If it's a furnace, there will be ducts and a blower/exchanger that deliver the heat to each room.
You will have an oil storage tank and have scheduled deliveries of oil from an oil company. Rates will vary from year to year, but most companies should offer a lock-in rate benefit.
I'd be happy to answer more questions that you might think of.

Hi Elaine,

I'll be happy to share my experiences with the pros and cons of any homes you may be considering in Evergreen. As part of the due diligence I help buyers through during the decision-making process to make an offer and during escrow we'll closely scrutinize how a house sits in the community, maybe where it is relative to the mountainside (if applicable), any legal and /or physical access issues such as easements, snow load, driveway grade and exposure. We'll also consider carefully issues such as defensible space for wildfires, productivity and potability of the well water and issues that might arise with different building and/or roofing architecture and materials. When considering a home in the mountains I think it's best to arm yourself with as many details as possible. Feel free to forward any individual homes or subdivisions you are curious about and I'll help you do your "home" work! ... more

Hi MG,

Jump to the bottom for the short answer.

I frequently run statistics for Evergreen homes in terms of general overviews to provide people with averages and an idea of what the market conditions are-- but a closer analysis of specific property features, characteristics and specific active competition is required to give you a better idea of why a home sits on the market…

I believe a better approach to valuing a home is to consider the three P's of marketing real estate:
1.) Product -what the house is, what it isn't and how does it compete against specific competitors,
2.) Pricing- The importance of finding the "Sweet Spot" in which the home is priced below superior and/or equal competitors, above inferior competitors and at a compelling price to attract attention from Buyers who wouldn't otherwise look at your offering.
3.) Promotions-Is the good word of your homes offering broadcast out to as many marketing conduits as possible? Are you taking advantage of a hybrid mix of "old school" marketing tools AND the newest technologies to tell would-be-buyers of your home?

When marketing a home each of the "P's" effects the others for example you may be able to sell an inferior Product relative to the competition if the Pricing and Promotion is better than the competition. Of course, the Price can be higher if the home is better and Promotions are superior. Conversely, if the home (Product) is inferior or equivalent to the competition and the Price is average or high-no amount of Promotion is going to help-other than to bring Buyers into your neighborhood and sell the competition.

I'm familiar with the home on Stanley Park, I'm very familiar with the area (lived on Edelweiss) and I sold what is arguably the closest comparable sale to that home at 24781 S. Mountain Park. I'll be happy to talk with you about the home; how, as a Product it compares with the competition, accurately Pricing the home, and superior marketing Promotion strategies if you reach out to me-at or (720)273-4262.

As a straight shooter: the short answer is about -1% to +2% appreciation which, would be a ball park range of $321,750-331,500.
