Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Wolfe Appraisal & Consulting, Inc will ensure you get it 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 the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value. At the end of the day, your house is only worth what another person is offering to pay.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more Ohio homeowners are making the decision 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 for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it's hard to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a sound asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very useful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
