Every listing from every company in one place. Prompt removal of sold and expired listings. Fast updates for new listings. We’ve rebuilt our entire website to give you the largest, fastest, and most accurate database of Colorado real estate along with the best local user experience. National Portals like Zillow and such slow updates and are inaccurate and incomplete nationwide websites like Trulia and Zillow only have access to a fraction of agent-listed homes. In a recent study by the WAV Group, the number of homes available on websites were measured in cities across the U.S. Zillow and Trulia had 20% fewer homes available on their websites than MLS-fed sites like ours.

In Colorado, the national websites averaged more than 30% fewer homes. Zillow had just 72% of the agent-listed homes available, while Trulia had only 63%. Telluride Realty & Investment receives 100% of agent-listed homes with our direct feed from the MLS database. Only a local brokerage can deliver those listings to you accurately, every day. Many of the best homes are selling the first week they come on the market. National portals can take over a week to upload new home listings to their websites, and even longer to remove sold listings. Telluride Realty & Investment updates throughout the day with new listings. Our home buyers see the newest listings first, and they have a better chance at finding the right home before it’s sold. Our buyers can also receive daily emails with the newest listings in their neighborhood to stay on top of the changes in their local market and be prepared when the right home comes along. Buyers need to have accurate, complete, up-to-the minute information available to them in today’s competitive market. At Telluride Realty & Investment we strive to give you the best possible information, every minute of every day.

Less Hassle, More In Your Pocket, Peace Of Mind…

When selling your Telluride, Colorado area house, make your decision on what’s right for you based on these 3 important factors.

  1. The true costs: Often times people look at the commissions for an agent as a necessary evil to sell your home. But, when you partner with the right Colorado Western Slope Real Estate agents, that agent is the expert in your corner to protect your best interests. If a property takes longer to sell, a buyer backs out, you misstep because of a mistake in the contract that could cost you money, paying buyers agent commissions… all of those things add up to the true cost of selling your house.
  2. Your time commitment: Do you want to be (and have the time to be) heavily involved in all aspects of selling the house? From marketing to taking calls from buyers, to showing the house, doing your own open house, putting signs outside, to setting up escrow, and more? All so you can save 2 or 3% on the sale. Just calculate what your time and energy are worth and where you should best focus your time. If you’d rather not hassle with the details of your house sale, work with a trusted agent like Telluride realty & Investment.
  3. The “experience factor”: There are hangups that can throw your closing off or cost you thousands. We help you avoid those and we deal with them for you.
