Getting an appraisal from Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services before putting your Wabash County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a 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 their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

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

Quite a few IN homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking 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
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an inflated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
