Equity Colorado Real Estate just sold these homes and many others in Boulder and surrounding 
communities. We still have many qualified buyers with families and too few homes available
to show them. We need immediate inventory to fulfill their needs.  If you could sell
your property now at an acceptable price, would you consider an offer?  Anyone you 
know who might be planning to sell this spring?  If so, please email or text us so that
we may find homes for these families.   bruceroyer@equityco.net   303-589-7168  cell
 
SO…LET’S CHAT ABOUT YOUR PAST APPRAISALS QUESTIONS.
   1. Does the appraiser know the sales price in a contract prior to the appraisal?  Yes.   
   2. Will the appraised price depend on whether the appraiser is being paid by the seller
       or buyer?  Supposedly not…however.
   3. Is there is a specific formula used?  No.  Factors include most recent “sold”
       comparable properties, location, size, style, quality of construction, overall condition,
       land, proximity to local facilities, and price per square foot analysis.
   4. Is an appraisal similar to a home inspection?  Not really, except both appraiser
       and home inspector do look at condition.
   5. What happens if the appraised price is higher than the contract price?  Could be
       good news for the buyer since the buyer is paying for the appraisal. The report
       does not need to be shared with the Seller or Seller’s Broker.

BAD NEWS FOR BOULDER COUNTY (from the Denver Business Journal…Feb 14, 2017)
   Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman followed through with her threat to sue 
   Boulder County over its years-long ban on accepting oil and gas permit applications.
   Coffman sent a letter to Boulder County officials in late January saying she couldn’t
   “turn a blind eye” to the county’s “continued moratorium on new and gas development.”
