Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Appraisal Care will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

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 help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated 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 instead of 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.
