Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays 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 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 for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of NY homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it's very hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
