If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money 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've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of GA homeowners are choosing 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, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it can be very difficult 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
