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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool 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 problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months.
