Putting a house on the market in or near Baltimore County? Contact Klein Appraisals, LLC and make sure you're setting the price 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 a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult 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, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

Quite a few MD 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, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult 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 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 inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of the value of 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 instead of waiting 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
