Putting a house on the market in or near Washtenaw County? Contact RJE Real Estate Appraisal Service and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners 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 if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to 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 when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated impression 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 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
