Selling your home in or near Douglas County? Contact Saxton Appraisals, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider 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 an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on 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. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few NE homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal.

We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to flop
