Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal.

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 sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
