It depends, sometimes you get more than you pay for. It's always worth negotiating hard!

Likely it's purposeful negligence. Once you pay for an ad, they'll get it right.

Love Tim's answer LOL!
Here are mine:
1) I only need a fair market value offer, PLUS
2) A replacement home with comparable amenities (high walkability score, great in-town location, updated interior and nicer finishes, etc.)
Hey, I guess I only need two things....!

But in Denver right now inventory is so low, folks should understand that an exact lateral-type move may not be as likely or make as much sense as a move-down or move-up. The good news is there are options out there with just a little compromise.

The interest rates being what they are now create a win-win all around, for example, Buyers moving up can get a lot for their money in an appreciating market and still get a loan at historical record lows (in the 4-4.5% range depending on credit scores, etc.) That means more value for the money here in Denver!

Are you looking for live/work space or for only commercial space that might be in a residential home or area? I see some great options if you are looking to have your pt & massage business in your home, nice little spaces that can be separated from living quarters. This is my specialty, let me know if you need further guidance. ... more

I do think that some people are quite adept at selling FSBO, and I'd rather they do that than ask me to reduce my commission by a ridiculous amount. So here's what you need to ask yourself first:
1. How much of my time and resources ($$) am I willing to put toward marketing my house?
2. How much liability am I willing to accept during the legal transaction?
3. What is the Salida market like and how much hard data do I have? (not, my neighbor put a sign in the yard and sold in three days)
4. Would you do your own root canal?

If you feel good about your answers, I'd suggest spending some time in Barnes & Noble looking through the real estate books. There are many written about FSBO (because you can make money denouncing real estate agents) and some of them are quite good. I've done this myself, to see what is logical and what is just huffing and puffing.

Find the book that fits your style and makes you feel comfortable with the process. And if you're not going to pay a Realtor, GET AN ATTORNEY to review the contracts.

I wonder what you do for a living... I think I'll do that too. --I know I'm being snarky, but it's kind of an exhausting question when you work very hard and help a lot of people through a difficult transaction. That said, there are those who are quite capable of selling their own homes.

Tracy Shaffer answered:
Park Hill is a very unique neighborhood as it is seen and valued block to block. While saying that you could get a home with an average PSF of $197 could be true, though most of these answers look like the belong to a different market, it really depends on WHERE in Park Hill. We have homes along the parkways that sell for well over a million dollars and smaller homes on the north and east sides that sell in the 200-400. I just pulled a wide range criteria for Park Hill and it shows a value of $330 per square foot.
I adore Park Hill for all of it's architectural, neighborhood diversity, and strong sense of community. That's why I live here.
