Selling your home in or near Bingham County? Contact Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few ID homeowners are choosing 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, and we understand that it can be very 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high 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
