Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few MA 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult 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 realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
