Getting an appraisal from Certified Residential Inc before putting your Fairfield County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, 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?

More and more OH homeowners are making the decision 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, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful 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 get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
