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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. You see, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. At the end of the day, your house is only worth what another person is offering to pay.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few California homeowners are deciding 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 for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at 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 sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have originally gotten. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
