Putting a house on the market in or near Allegheny County? Contact Nordquist Appraisal LLC and make sure you're setting the price 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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. 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 help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of 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.
