Selling your home in or near Bingham County? Contact (208) 782-0233 and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of Idaho homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed.
