Selling your home in or near Madison County? Contact Jakway Appraisals 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 the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of NY homeowners are choosing 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 for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an 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 waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
