Selling your home in or near Logan County? Contact Woodlee Appraisal Service and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an 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 an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

You're probably, as a homeowner, thinking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value. At the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for what another person is willing to give you.

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

An increasing amount of Kentucky homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, it's very difficult to take an objective look at 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 sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate
People are surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on 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. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

And that's where Woodlee Appraisal Service comes in.
