Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Flight Appraisal.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth every penny 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 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. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market. At the end of the day, your house is only worth the price another person is going to give you.

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

An increasing amount of Michigan homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have originally gotten. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
