Getting an appraisal from Dennis Appraisals before putting your Montgomery County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value. A home is only going to sell for the price another person is willing to pay.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of Tennessee homeowners are deciding 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very useful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
