How to Get the Most Accurate Valuation for your Home

When you are thinking about selling your home, you are essentially gambling that your investment will give you a valuable return. A valuation will give potential buyers an idea of what fair market price is for your home, so having an accurate valuation is of tantamount importance to see the return on investment you would hope for in a home sale. Here are some pieces of advice to help you get the most accurate valuation for your home.

Get the Most Accurate Valuation for your Home: Get an Appraisal

According to HomeLight, a home appraisal has a licensed real estate appraiser determine what a fair market value price for your home is. Appraisals are often also used to decide how much you will owe in property taxes. You can even have what is called an appraisal contingency built into your sales contract when you buy a home, which will state that if an appraisal comes in lower than expected you can walk away from the purchase. Appraisals can be done online or in-person depending on your preferences, but having an appraisal done is a smart idea.

Order an Inspection

You should also have a home inspection before buying or selling your home. A home inspection will ensure that there is no structural or other damage to the property that you are unaware of before purchasing or selling. An inspection differs from an appraisal, because an inspection is only about the damage and quality of the home, whereas an appraisal is mainly just concerned with the value and cost of the property. According to J Bixler Inspections, you should always get an inspection before you sell your home. That way, there won’t be any surprises if you need to fix some damage before closing on a deal.

Get the Most Accurate Valuation for your Home: Don’t Let Sentiment Get In Your Way

Homes are almost always perceived as more valuable to the homeowner than potential buyers. This can be due to many things, but most commonly Go Wise Choice says it is due to valuing sentimental memories in the home. While your memories in your home should be valued and treasured, they do not impact the value of your home. The price you can charge does not go up due to having an attachment to your home, and the earlier in the selling process you can accept that, the better.

Selling a home can be stressful and hectic. But with some help, a lot of patience, and following these tips, you can get the most accurate valuation possible for your house. Don’t stress, stick with the process, and you’ll come out on the other side seeing a return on your investment!
