Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Faubion Appraisals will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

You could be focused on the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. You see, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market. A home is only going to sell for the price another person is willing to give you.

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

Quite a few Missouri 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it's hard 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.

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 negotiating 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 get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through
People are surprised when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it 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 will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
