Getting an appraisal from Accuracy Matters Appraisals before putting your South Fork home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands 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 allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
