Getting an appraisal from Frederick & Company before putting your Allegheny County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

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

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed.
