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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in 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 an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

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 expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of hidden 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 by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
