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

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 a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need 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 selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. 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 expected they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal 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 rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
