Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Klein Appraisals, LLC will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp 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 to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining 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 problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
