Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from RJE Real Estate Appraisal Service will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. 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 an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more MI 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 for top dollar, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an overestimated 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 in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high 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
