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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

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

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, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get 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 asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand 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 helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
