Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Salt Lake Appraising.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in 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.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more UT homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, 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 realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal 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 rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
