Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Dan Dean will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get out of it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for what another person is offering to pay.

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

More and more Pennsylvania homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic 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
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through
People are surprised when they find out their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while getting nothing done.
