Getting an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services before putting your Queens County 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 difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few NY homeowners are choosing 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 for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months.
