Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC.

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 a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, 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 how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more ID homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a qualified appraiser. 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
