Getting an appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC before putting your Allegheny County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating 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 hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
