Getting an appraisal from Collard Appraisal Group before putting your Palmdale home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more 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 if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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 astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months.
