Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. 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 a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few LA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
