Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. 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 an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

An increasing amount of MD homeowners are choosing 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, quickly and for top dollar, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

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

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on 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 when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
