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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

Quite a few 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an exaggerated assessment 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 gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
