Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract 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 interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
