Sell Your Cabin for Top Dollar

Published: March 1, 2009

What will help you sell your cabin more quickly? A professional appraisal.

It's best to have an expert set a price in a detailed report that can be shared with potential buyers. An appraisal will pave the way for the buyer’s mortgage lender approval.

An appraisal done by a licensed pro typically costs $300 to $500 depending on region. For that fee, you’ll receive a hefty document detailing the value of your land and your improvements – plus comparisons to several similar properties that have sold recently in your area. It’s a very valuable tool that can validate your asking price and hasten the sale.

These tips will help you prepare for a successful appraisal.
