Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Genesis Appraisal Group will ensure you get it right.

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 in the long run! Unless the 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.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few OR homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with 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 stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes 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 get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of 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.
