Getting an appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. before putting your Riverside County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; 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 understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more 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, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at 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 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 the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
