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, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and 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 difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.
We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?
More and more PA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard 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.
Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an exaggerated opinion 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
