Selling your home in the Kansas City metro area? Contact Biggs Appraisal Services and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more MO homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help 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. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
