Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Acme Appraisals LLC.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. A home is only going to sell for what another person is willing to pay.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of Mississippi homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it's 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 sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop
People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
