Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more OK homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's 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.

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

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on 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 sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
