Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months.
