We are not talking about how much you have invested in 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.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
