Getting an appraisal from Quality Appraisal Services Inc. before putting your Fairfax County home on the market saves you time and money.

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 pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

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 your home's market value.

More and more VA 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months.
