Getting an appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services before putting your Buzzards Bay home on the market saves you time and money.

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 their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
