Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Lowman Appraiser's & Consultant's will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. 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 difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

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

Quite a few MO 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, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
