Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Sunrise Appraisals will ensure you get it 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 you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of PA homeowners are deciding 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, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated impression of their home's value, 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 sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
