Here at Simpson Real Estate Appraisals, we want to help all of our clients find the homes of their dreams, and the first step to getting your dream house is to sell the one that you already have. In order to sell your home and get the best price for the property, we strongly encourage you to hire a certified residential appraiser to assess it. In this article, we’ll go over some of the reasons behind this recommendation.
- Get an Accurate Estimate of Your Home’s Value. One of the main reasons to hire a certified residential appraiser is that it is the best way to get an accurate estimate of your home’s value. It’s important to know how much your home is actually worth so that you can set the best market price for your property–set the price too low and you’ll lose money but set it too high and you will likely fail to attract any buyers. Our team of appraisers can help you find the sweet spot where your asking price is concerned.
- Get Advice on What to Improve. The other main reason to hire a certified residential appraiser like those on our team is that we can give you specific advice on which features need to be improved, and which improvements to prioritize. Certain home improvement efforts can significantly increase your home’s value, while others will generate little to no return on investment. Our team can tell you which improvements, if any, are worthwhile in your particular situation.
