Selling your home in or near Putnam County? Contact AllieRealty LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

You, as a homeowner, might be thinking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market. A home is only going to sell for the price another person is going to give you.

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

More and more West Virginia 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, it's very difficult to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage 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 last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to flop
People are surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
