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 a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of OK homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need 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 tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value 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 expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order 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, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
