Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Butler Appraisals.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of IA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
