Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease 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 delay a closing

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months.
