Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Collard Appraisal Group.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few CA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find 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 hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
