Selling your home in or near Fairfield County? Contact Certified Residential Inc and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and 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 get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few OH 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
