How an Appraiser Can Help You Prepare to Sell Your Home 

Mar 12, 2022

As a homeowner, there are many times throughout the course of owning your home when requesting a home appraisal may make good sense. One of those times is when thinking about selling your home. At Allstate Appraisal, our home appraisal specialists can help you to prepare to sell your home. Here’s what you should know about the value of a home appraisal before selling and our home appraisal services—

What Is a Home Appraisal?

A home appraisal is a professional, third-party assessment and estimation of the value of your home. There are many things that can impact the outcome of a home appraisal, including the location of your home, home size, whether you’ve done any repairs or upgrades, market value of similar homes, age of your home, and more. A home appraisal is conducted by a neutral, third-party appraisal that has been trained in the appraisal process. 

The Value of a Home Appraisal When Preparing to Sell Your Home

The primary reason that a home appraisal is so valuable when you are getting ready to sell your home is that it can give you an idea of what you should list your home for. Note that listing your home around its appraisal value may be very important later on—most lenders will not approve loans for homes that are appraised under the selling value, which means a buyer could lose out on the chance to purchase your home—inconveniencing you—if you list your home too high. An appraisal could also provide clues into whether or not you should do any upgrades or renovations before selling, such as finishing a basement or replacing an old roof.
