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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand local real estate values.

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 your home's market value.

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

Quite a few NE homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value 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 set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
