Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Abandy & Associates Appraisal Services.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you 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.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few CA homeowners are choosing 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. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard to take an objective look at 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.

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

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on 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 gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
