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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of NY homeowners are choosing 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
