Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Barnes Appraisal Company.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more OK homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help 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 condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to get an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a listing agreement. And that's where Barnes Appraisal Company comes in. We can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a precise writeup of your home's features and a detailed breakdown of the most recent and similar comparable sales or as they're commonly called, "comps".
