Getting an appraisal from Guy Appraisal before putting your Buchanan County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

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

Quite a few MO homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
