Putting a house on the market in or near Jackson County? Contact Midwest Valuation, LLC 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's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

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

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

Quite a few MO homeowners are deciding 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, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult 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 sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression when they put a value on 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 will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
