Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more CA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have 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 hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally.
