Getting an appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc. before putting your Omaha home on the market saves you time and money.

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 studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

I are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get out of it. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. Technically, something is only going to sell for the price another person is going to pay.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few Nebraska 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, it's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. I will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through
It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So 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 could have originally banked. Others have an an inflated impression of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Get a comprehensive appraisal before listing

You may have a very experienced agent, but it's in your best interest to have an unbiased second opinion of value prior to finalizing a listing contract. And that's where Saxton Appraisals, Inc. comes in. I can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a definitive writeup of your home's characteristics and a detailed breakdown of the the latest and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
