Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Alpine Valuation Services will ensure you get it right.

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

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of UT homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting 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.
