For Sale by Owner/Pre-Listing ServicesIt's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at A.M.O. Appraisals, Inc., will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value assessment than yours.
