Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Schwab Appraisal LLC.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in 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 an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few ID homeowners are deciding 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 for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find 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 last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of the value of 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
