Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Blue Ridge Appraisal Co., L.L.C..

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 every penny in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

You, as a homeowner, might be thinking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market. After all, a home is only worth what another person is offering to pay.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more Virginia homeowners are choosing 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 professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your 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:
  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop
It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
