Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Bay Area Appraisal Services Inc..

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a step in the right direction. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult 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 how much you want to sell it for. You see, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. A home is only going to sell for what another person is willing to pay.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of Florida 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sound selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate
It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
