Selling your home in or near Macomb County? Contact Appraisal Alliance, Inc and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

More and more MI homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly 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

Get a professional value opinion before listing

Even if you're working with a very skillful agent, it's definitely a good idea to get an unbiased second opinion of value prior to finalizing a listing agreement. And that's where Appraisal Alliance, Inc comes in.
