Getting an appraisal from (208) 782-0233 before putting your Blackfoot home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few Idaho homeowners are making the decision 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 top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about your 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out 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 several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment 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 in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
