Putting a house on the market in or near Frederick County? Contact Amerappraise and make sure you're setting the price right.

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

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of MD 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
