Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. You see, the appraisal measures your home's market value. A home is only worth the price another person is going to pay.

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

Quite a few Connecticut 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to flop
People are surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have originally netted. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
