Getting an appraisal from Cooper Appraisal Company, Inc. before putting your Faulkner County 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 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.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. After all, a home is only worth the price another person is offering to pay.

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

More and more Arkansas homeowners are choosing 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, quickly and for top dollar, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, it's very hard 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 helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So taking the first step and 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 inflated assessment of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than waiting 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 getting nothing done.

Get a professional value opinion before listing

Even if you're working with a very skillful agent, it's definitely a good idea to get an analysis of value prior to finalizing a listing agreement. Cooper Appraisal Company, Inc. can help. We can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a precise writeup of your home's characteristics and a detailed breakdown of the the latest and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
