Getting an appraisal from B. Russell Valuation before putting your home on the market saves you time and money.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays 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 real estate market forces.
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. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?
More and more MN homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance 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 qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, it's very 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
Get a professional value opinion before listing
You might have a highly experienced agent but it's definitely a good idea to have an unbiased second opinion of value prior to signing a listing agreement. And that's where B. Russell Valuation comes in. We can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a precise description of your home's characteristics and a detailed analysis of the latest and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
