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. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

Quite a few OK homeowners are choosing 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have 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.
