Putting a house on the market? Contact Armstrong Appraisal Group and make sure you're setting the price 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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more CA homeowners are deciding 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
