Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC.

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 a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more PA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to be objective about your 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 realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that 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 several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
