Getting an appraisal from Contact Appraisals before putting your Lebanon home on the market saves you time and money.

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

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few PA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very hard 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 sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
