Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc. will ensure you get it 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 pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more NE homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust 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.
