Putting a house on the market in or near Providence County? Contact Kenneth R. Bush Associates and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of RI 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 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 explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
