Getting an appraisal from TNT Appraisals & Home Inspections, Inc. before putting your Cuyahoga County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a step in the right direction. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for what another person is going to give you.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of Ohio homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, it can be very hard to take an objective look at your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
