If you want to sell your home fast, in today’s poor real estate market, then you need to price your home appropriately. The best way to know how much your home is worth is to get an appraisal. One of the quickest ways to get an estimate of your home’s true value, is to get an Internet home appraisal. This article explains why you should get a home appraisal before selling your home and where to get a free internet home appraisal.
Why get a home appraisal before selling your home? The reason is simple. Many people overprice their home and therefore can’t sell it. The number one reason a home will not sell is because it is overpriced. Many people take the wrong approach to determining their home’s value. They drive around their neighborhood and see what other homes are listed for. This is a big mistake. You really want to know what homes, comparable to yours, in your neighborhood have actually sold for. There is a big difference in a listing price and a sold price. The sold price is the true value of a home.
So how do you get these values? Well, there are many ways, but one is by using one of the free Internet home appraisal websites. Such sites like HomeGain, provide a quick estimate of your home’s value. All you do is supply the address of the home and basic information about the home, and click a button. In a few seconds you will have your homes estimated value, based on home sales in your area. I recommend checking your home’s value at several sites and then averaging the value.
