Getting an appraisal from Premier Appraisals, Inc. before putting your Suffolk County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

You, as a homeowner, might be thinking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market. Something is only going to sell for what another person is willing to give you.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of New York homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, you need 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 explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
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 several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them 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. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
