Putting a house on the market in or near Washington County? Contact Scott Appraisal Co. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

You're probably fixated on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. Technically, something is only worth the price another person is willing to give you.

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

Quite a few Oklahoma homeowners are choosing 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, what you need is a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sound selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop
Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust 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.
