Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Certified Residential Inc.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of OH 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating 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 eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
