Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Susan Scotto Allison will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of AZ homeowners are choosing 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, what you need is a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very hard 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.

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

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression of the value of 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
