Selling Your Farm
Weld county has a variety of properties that have some acreage or land attached to them. Some are large country properties with 60 or more acres and others are smaller with only 2-5 acres. Selling or buying an acreage type of property with a home on it is a specialized process that we can help with. Not everyone understands the value of water rights, farm equipment like pivots and tractors, or how to deal with growing crops and mineral rights. We do. Let us help you if you’re interested in having a little “elbow” room or if you’re downsizing and selling the family farm…we have the experience on our team and understand the complexity of transactions.
Pricing and Timing
How We Market and Sell
We believe it is extremely important to objectively and accurately evaluate your property for marketability. Every buyer who sees your home will be comparing it to the competition in your area and price range. How we position your home for marketing is critical to how soon your property sells. Let’s take a look at the main factors we consider:
Interior features and characteristics – including: Floor plan, when the home was built and if there are obsolescence concerns. The condition of the floors and walls, a fresh coat of paint may be necessary. Kitchen features, room sizes, lighting and windows are also evaluated.
Exterior – Curb appeal is important and when a prospective buyer drives up, they’re going to have a first impression that influences their decision. We help you to look at things like landscaping, exterior paint and condition. A small investment in paint or cleaning up can yield big results in terms of making a great first impression.
Condition – Potential buyers may assume that a need for minor repairs indicates a general lack of maintenance over time. We will make suggestions on areas that need attention.
No two homes are identical, which is why choosing a sales price or offer price for a home can be challenging. That’s where the comparative market analysis, or CMA is essential to price your property right.
The real estate market fluctuates and it is our job to monitor these changes and keep you informed. This doesn’t always mean a price adjustment, but we will always look out for the seller’s best interests.
Buyers want to get the best possible price. Starting at the right price leaves little room for negotiation.
Inspections and Repair Negotiations
Property inspections can frequently result in buyer requirements for corrections by the seller. The buyer normally orders and pays for inspections. Our job is to make sure that inspections happen on time and that we receive the inspection reports by due dates. We will meet with our sellers and discuss all objections and requirements. We will then develop a counter strategy.
Contract to Closing Process
There are many details involved in the taking a signed contract through to closing. We pay close attention to detail and coordinate all activities to meet all deadlines and move through the closing smoothly. Major milestones are Title and recorded documents, Inspections, survey and appraisal reports, Repair negotiations and completion of corrective actions. Lender document coordination, one of the leading causes of delayed closings is a problem with funding due to last minute requirements. As protection to our sellers, we monitor the document flow and the lender’s process to ensure that this doesn’t happen.
There are a lot of details and steps that we will handle in order to meet your goal. There are many factors that are important parts of a successful transaction.

We believe that open communication and honesty are essential to building a relationship of trust with you.
