Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Faden Appraisal will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. After all, a home is only worth the price another person is offering to give you.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of Nebraska homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. 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 sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very useful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in real estate "limbo".
