Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from SACRAMENTO VALLEY APPRAISAL GRP will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, 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 provides a professional opinion on your home's market value. At the end of the day, your house is only worth what another person is willing to give you.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few California homeowners are choosing 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 for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, and we understand that it's hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a sound asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find 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 overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have originally banked. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
