Selling your home in or near Riverside County? Contact Good Appraisal Services, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you 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 get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few CA homeowners are choosing 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
