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 an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few CO homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home 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 fall through

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of 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 sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
