Putting a house on the market in or near Douglas County? Contact Saxton Appraisals, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few NE 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 for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it 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
