Selling your home in or near Floyd County? Contact Michael Smith Appraisals, Inc and make sure you're setting the price 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 pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more GA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
