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 a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few MA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
