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 an 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 practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

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, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is 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 explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it 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. 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
