Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Klein Appraisals, LLC 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 in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

More and more MD homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

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

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool 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 problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
