Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Barnes Appraisal Company.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more OK 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 top dollar, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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 so your home will attract 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 your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated 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 sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
