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

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

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 to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it's very hard to take an objective look at 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
