Selling your home in or near Queens County? Contact Sirius Appraisal Services 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 a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few NY homeowners are deciding 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. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
