Putting a house on the market in or near Comanche County? Contact Barnes Appraisal Company and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

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 to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
