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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an 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 hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more NE homeowners are deciding 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 top dollar, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Get a professional value opinion before listing

You might have a highly skillful agent but it's definitely a good idea to have an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to finalizing a listing agreement. And that's where Saxton Appraisals, Inc. comes in. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate summarizing of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the newest and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
