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's worth the money 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 local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of LA homeowners are choosing 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally 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 originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
