Getting an appraisal from Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. before putting your Abington home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you 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 understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of PA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very hard 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
