Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Appraisal Associates will ensure you get it 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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. You see, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. At the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for the price another person is willing to pay.

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

Quite a few New York homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about your 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 realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide
People are surprised to discover their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your house waits for a buyer.

You may have a very experienced agent, but it's in your best interest to have an analysis of your home's value before signing a listing contract. Let Appraisal Associates help. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal that will let you and your agent have an accurate writeup of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
