Getting an appraisal from Barnes Appraisal Company before putting your Lawton home on the market saves you time and money.

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 understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

An increasing amount of OK homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of 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:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home 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 receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
