The prospective buyer can check with the town/city to see what permits were pulled.... It depends the extent of work you completed in the basement. Did you complete any plumbing, electrical, structural framing work? ... more

To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, you can list it on Zillow.
Once you’re on Zillow’s posting page, please make sure to select “For Sale by Owner” under the address field. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Is the home listed for sale with a Realtor? Or are you just looking at the public records info? If it's for sale, you should contact your agent. If it's public records, I'd be careful about changing anything. If your county records are inaccurate, you'll have to take it up with them. BUT....beware that if you add finished SF or bedrooms or bathrooms your taxes will go UP. (this happens occasionally when homeowners do un-permitted work to their homes).

If the home isn't for sale, I wouldn't worry too much about the data on this site. The data integrity isn't great. And this site doesn't mean squat in terms of actual home values. Same goes for Zillow.

The HOA fee is an annual fee. The taxes are $2,348. What other details would you like on this home? It is in a great location. Close to Conifer High school, hiking, and shopping. It is convenient to Hwy 285 and just off of county hwy 73 (2 lane rd.). It is only a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Evergreen. I'd be happy to find you more information if you are interested. ... more

Robert McGuire answered:

In the situation you mentioned it certainly is a good idea to contest the value of a home in this market. The county sill not take into consideration what the bank foreclosure value is but what other normal homes have sold for over the last year. But you will need to be in title and ownership to appeal the valuation of a home. At closing, the title company will normally use the most recent tax valuation to calculate what you pay.

I also moved here from Michigan about 14 years ago. I bought my first home in Conifer and lived there for 10 years. I live in Evergreen now, but still spend a lot of time in the Conifer area. Coming from Michigan myself, I know what a shock it is to see home prices out here! First, remember that the market in this area is doing really well and is getting better every day. Second, think about property taxes. The property taxes in Colorado are much less than they are in Michigan. The property taxes will help you to be able to afford a higher priced home here than in would allow in Michigan.
To answer your question on sale price vs. list price percentage, it is any where from 93%-99% typically. Of course, it can vary with condition of the home and time on the market but you will find that most realtors do a very good job of pricing homes at their fair market value to begin with. I have attached a link to information on the market. See page 15 and look at MCP (that includes Morrison, Conifer and Pine) and then look for the list % to see for yourself. Good luck with the move and please contact me with any questions you have. I'd be happy to recommend a few mortgage brokers, neighborhoods that would suite you, to send you listings that you might be interested in or anything else you would like help with.

There is no typical transaction in today’s market. Some of my local competitors take three times as long to process a loan application as it does for my shop. The seller could have been making repairs prior to inspection or they were out of town, had a death in the family, etc. Deals do not take place in a vacuum. Keep looking, as long as this one is in escrow it isn’t available. Good luck, ... more

Bob Krus answered:
Hi Kathi,

It's actually the county Public Trustee that processes the foreclosure, not the sheriff. If an eviction is necessary, the sheriff will enforce that.

Here is a link which explains the foreclosure process in Colorado:

If you have trouble accessing the link try going to my website:

Then click on How Stuff Works/Foreclosures. This should give a pretty good description of the foreclosure process.

The actual bidding process may differ from county to county. You may be able to find information on the public trustee's website. If your property is in Jefferson County, you can visit:

for details pertaining to the process and the specific property. If your property is in Jeffco, then the auction date should be shown there. Call the trustee to be sure it will be auctioned on the stated date.

If you have questions, feel free to call me.

Hi Estelle,

I have helped several Buyers and Sellers navigate the various pitfalls of lease purchases and lease options in Conifer, Morrison, Golden and Evergreen. The first thng I always insist on is to have an attorney-- not your agent or property manager, draw up the agreement and discuss the risks. I recently had a very constructive conversation with John Goodman an attorney specializing in real estate transactions. I will be happy to refer you to him and he may be able to assist you. In your description of the story it is clear that someone did something wrong and you very well may be able to recover damages. ... more
