Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from JTH Appraisals.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. 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 an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

Quite a few 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 to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at 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 realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
