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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. You see, the appraisal measures your home's market value. After all, a home is only going to sell for what another person is offering to give you.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few Oklahoma 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have originally netted. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and 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. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
