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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
