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

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 you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

An increasing amount of MA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at 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 astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months.
