Getting an appraisal from Arnold Appraisal Service before putting your Brattleboro home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few VT homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
