Selling your home in or near Comanche County? Contact Barnes Appraisal Company 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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of OK homeowners are choosing 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, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
