Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from East Tennessee Real Estate and Appraisal will ensure you get it 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 difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more TN homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
