Your home appraisal is a ”defensible” and carefully documented opinion of value. Most commonly derived using recent sales of comparable properties by a licensed, professional appraiser.It’s very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. A Professional Appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.
If you are going to sell your home you would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Professional appraisals do not cost money, they pay in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it’s difficult for them to get a handle on real estate values. We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, how much you paid for it, or how much you want for it. We are talking about the true market value of your home.
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home’s value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.
In addition an appraisal will help you by pointing out needed repairs and visible deficiencies in the property which will allow you to correct these items before placing it on the market. It is very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it.
You’re The Boss
This means that you are in complete control over the ordering and inspection interview of your home – ensurring the appraiser addresses your concerns while completing an unbiassed and fair appraisal report for you and your sales agent.
That’s right, your home appraisal is 100% reimbersible when your home sales. By working with our real estate agents offering this service – its a win win for all!
It’s Your Appraisal
Knowledge is power and you are in the loop – no one can tell you something different than what you already know about your home and its value.
A Great Sales Tool!
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It’s an independent third party’s opinion of your home’s value, and not just you saying how much your home is worth.
Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser’s value opinion than yours.
We can even host your appraisal within our cloud to help showcase your appraisal to potential buyers 24×7.
