Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Pierce Appraisal will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of NE homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
