Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Collard Appraisal Group will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few CA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard 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.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
