Putting a house on the market in or near Saint Louis County? Contact The Appraisal Office, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

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

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few MN 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking 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 your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of 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
