Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract 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's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months.
