Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Hill Appraisal Associates, LLC.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few Pennsylvania homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a qualified appraiser.

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months.
