Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Owen Appraisal Service LLC.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. 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 a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few PA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that 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 asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion 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 rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Get a professional value opinion before listing

You might have a very experienced agent but it's definitely a good idea to get an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a listing agreement. Owen Appraisal Service LLC can help. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate writeup of your home's features and a detailed breakdown of the latest and similar comparable sales or as they're commonly called, "comps".
