Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Certified Residential 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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, 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 how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very hard 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 astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers 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 stall a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting 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
