Selling Your Own Home? Need An Appraisal? We can DEFINITELY help!
So you are thinking about selling your own home? Great idea. In this market real estate commissions can be exceptionally high, and with the state of technology today, it has never been easier to list and sell your own property. Problem number one though; How much is your home worth? How much should you list your home for? Even more importantly, how much will someone be willing to PAY for your home in the current market?
Sure there are numerous AVM systems out there (Automatic Valuation Systems) such as Zillow that will give you a BALLPARK idea of what your home is worth based on an average of what homes LIKE yours are going for in your area, but how similar is your home to the other homes in your area? Are your upgrades better than theirs? Is your lot size bigger? How do the specifics of YOUR home affect its value in the current market, and how will potential BUYERS recognize those specific attributes and assign them value?
It is very common for parties involved in a private sale (a sale between two private parties without a realtor or a bank / lender directly involved) to obtain a professional appraisal of the property they are buying / selling. Many times a potential seller will obtain a private appraisal in order to help determine a more comprehensive and measured value of their home BEFORE they try to sell it. Savvy sellers know that the KEY to selling your property is pricing it right. The longer your home sits on the market the less likely it is to sell, and the less it will ultimately sell for. Competitively priced listings always sell first – do you know what your home is worth? Do you know what a typical buyer is willing to pay for your home in your market?
