Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few GA 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, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about 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:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
