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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional 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 a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help 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
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
