Selling your home 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 the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract 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 interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed.
