From an Appraisal standpoint, all items related to the house have positive or negative value. The county may not permit a kitchen though. From a Market perspective, there is a limited Buyer "pool" that needs a kitchen in the basement. Just like a swimming pool~ 1/2 the people like it , 1/2 don't. It therefore is a "wash"
Hope that helps!

As others have said, you're looking at the public record for the property. It's not listed for sale. And last sold a LONG time ago. Not sure why Trulia allows people to search for properties and they find these public records?!

Your best source of information is going to be your REALTOR. He/she will have access to the MLS which has the most accurate info.

Those are all good answers. But even the sellers who have equity are hesitant to sell for 3 reasons. They are not aware of the significant price increases all over the Denver area that could make this the best time for them to sell. They are not aware of the supply and demand issues that make it a quick and easy time for a seller to get a home sold often with multiple offers. Also, the sellers thought is "what if I do sell my home quickly and there is nothing out there for me". We will see what happens next as we get to spring. there are still buyers and sellers who have the old thought process of waiting to springtime to buy or sell.

Absolutely. The "bubble," a.k.a. homes prices in the Denver area and throughout the nation, BURST in 2008. If you purchased a home (especially a new home) between 2003 and 2008, it's likely your home is worth less in today's market. I also wonder if your appraisal in 2008 was for a re-finance?

Appraisers, though it's gotten much more difficult, used to sign off on literally any value for a re-finance because the loan had zero risk to the bank. You are already their customer and they "THOUGHT" they had nothing to lose.

Oops ... not only did homeowners get ripped off was ridiculously high appraisal values, but the banks lost, too. That is the primary reason the market crashed -- overinflated values, loans given to anyone who had a pulse, etc.

The good news for you today is values, in many areas, have made a comeback and it appears prices will continue rising due to huge buyer demand and low seller supply. If I can help further, please let me know.
