Getting an appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc. before putting your Douglas County home on the market saves you time and money.

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 you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on 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. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of NE 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, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get 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 realistic asking 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
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
