Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services will ensure you get it 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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of NY homeowners are deciding 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser.

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

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months.
