Putting a house on the market in or near Allegheny County? Contact Frederick & Company and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more PA homeowners are choosing 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 the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that 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:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
