Selling your home in or near Los Angeles County? Contact Collard Appraisal Group, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
