Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few PA 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, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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.

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

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order 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, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
