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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of OK homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting 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.
