It is common for homeowners and realtors to rely on real estate appraisers for assistance when establishing a list price for the sale of their home.
If you are a homeowner selling your property FSBO (For Sale By Owner) on your own or a seasoned realtor trying to establish a fair list price, it is often difficult to sift through all of the market data to determine a true home value.
That’s where Argentus Appraisals comes in. We have a long history of working with homeowners trying to sell their own homes (FSBO) as well as realtors needing additional support for their listings or to substantiate the true home value to their client.
At Argentus Appraisals, we can provide you with a professional, independent, impartial and objective appraisal report. A pre-listing appraisal ensures that both, you and/or your agent have an accurate description of your home’s features, a detailed analysis of market trends, comparable sales, and an accurate opinion of value.
Whether you choose to sell your home on your own (FSBO) or use the assistance of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal can help you make a more educated decision to determine your selling price.
An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. This is where we can give you the objective information you need to make an informed decision. Appraiser fees are based on efforts to complete the report and not a percentage of the sales price. Seeking a professional appraisal can help homeowners make the best decisions on investing in their homes and setting a fair sales price.
Contact Argentus Appraisal before selling your home
Buying a home is one of the largest investments most people will make. To get the highest value, you’ll want to make sure you’re paying fair market value.
Choosing a certified property appraiser will give you an unbiased expert opinion of the value of your dream home before you submit an offer.
Along with reducing the risk of overpaying for the home, having a professional appraisal is important for other reasons.
With an appraisal you’ll have hard data about the true nature of sales in the area to strengthen your offer or counter offer. This provides great support if (or when) you explain to the seller how you arrived at the price you are willing to pay.
If the appraised value is higher than the sale price, you’ll feel better about proceeding knowing you are paying a fair price for the property.
If the appraised value is lower than the asking price, however, you’ll gain comfort that you’re not overpaying for the property. You might use that information to negotiate with the seller in order to reduce the price.
Choosing an experienced appraiser is vital. We know all the factors that could influence a home’s value. Our experience and local knowledge make all the difference in providing an accurate opinion of the market value.
