If you're a home seller or a real estate agent and haven't been able to sell your home, consider getting an appraisal!
1. Get Accurate Square Footage For an Accurate PriceIf you don't know what the accurate heated and unheated living area of the home is, you will not be able to determine the most accurate value for it. So getting an appraisal will help.
2. Take Into Consideration Solds and Listings That Have Occurred Since the ListingIf you want to sell your home, then getting a more accurate list price that reflects the current market will help you. If there are other similar homes for sale that are priced more competitively than yours, they're probably going to sell more quickly.
3. Get a Fresh Set of Eyes From an Unbiased Third PartyBringing in an appraiser who has a fresh and unbiased perspective on your home could result in arriving at a price that is based on the market rather than what you think your house may be worth.4. Use a Floor Plan as a Selling ToolKnowing where rooms are located and the flow of the home can help buyers envision where their stuff will go, which can help sell your home quicker!5. Market it as a "Pre-appraised" HomeA home seller will have peace of mind knowing that the likelihood of their deal falling through due to a low appraisal will be decreased by getting a pre-listing appraisal.
