Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling 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 to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at 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.

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

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly 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.
