Putting a house on the market in or near Oakland County? Contact Accurate Value Real Estate Appraisals 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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of MI homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
