Selling your home in or near Montgomery County? Contact Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. 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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more PA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated 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 rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
