Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from S. Peters and Associates, Inc.

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

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few MN 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking 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 your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
