Selling your home in or near Hardin County? Contact T.H.E. Appraisers and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading 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.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more IA 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of 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.
