I would suggest calling a local Realtor in the Estes Park neighborhood. Not sure which website was asking for your credit card number, obviously I would hesitate to give out that information, scary.

Unfortunately, there is no average price per acre in Estes. Vacant land varies in price depending on views, utility availability and size of lot. Prices will range from $69,000 for .13 acre to $245,000 for 5.87 acres within Estes Park. Outlying areas are less expensive but will have fewer amenities. ... more

In NC the MLS services do not put the listings in any catagory other than by the normal search parameters such as address, and price. So good luck I guess the one thing to ask is how is your marketing plan? Are you going to going for; local, regional, statewide, national or international coverage. Just have a good plan in place.

Absolutely NOT.

Don't ever count solely on the assessors value to determine the value on a house. Although, most use it as a rule of thumb or a ballpark figure it is far from being absolute and intended for taxing purposes. Typically assessed values are less than fair market value, and occasionally over assessed.

Here is why they are typically assessed less than fair market because home/land owners don't complain when their home is assessed below fair market value because this means lower property taxes.

I would think it was great if a home was selling for less than the assessor's value, however, substantially less I'd be asking questions.

Hopefully, you are working with a local broker to Estes Park. A buyer agent will be a far better guide in terms of value than the assessors office.

Good luck,
Susan Walker

Thanks for your question about the market in Estes Park. I'm sorry I didn't notice your question sooner, but I just stumbled upon it today.

The market is relatively strong in Estes Park. The number of sales has dropped a bit this summer vs last summer but our median price is staying fairly flat for the last while. My opinion is that there are some good deals to be found, but the majority of homeowners are willing to wait out the dip in demand in order to get their price.

I do keep updated stats available on my web page Check out the link to the local area at the top of the page. You'll find all sorts of stats regarding the Estes Park Real Estate Market. Feel free to ask me more questions if you have any.
