Getting an appraisal from Peabody Allied Appraisers before putting your home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

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

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to be objective about your 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting 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.
