Selling your home in or near Ventura County? Contact Choice Appraisals, Inc. 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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few CA homeowners are choosing 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 expert appraiser. The best thing to have is 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 sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
