Getting an appraisal from J P Stein & Associates before putting your Bannock County home on the market saves you time and money.

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

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more ID 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they expected they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
