Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc..

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

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

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of MD homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated impression 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. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
