Getting an appraisal from Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC before putting your Blackfoot home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very difficult 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 astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home 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 expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
