Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
