Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few MD 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard 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 realistic selling 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
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
