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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

You could be fixated on the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. You see, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. Technically, something is only worth what another person is going to give you.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of California homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate
People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
