Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Smith Appraisal Services.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

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

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

An increasing amount of Wisconsin homeowners are deciding 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, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get 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 realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
