Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Frederick & Company.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more PA homeowners are choosing 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, you need a qualified appraiser. 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 tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute 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
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
