Selling your home in or near Ventura County? Contact Choice Appraisals, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in 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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very hard to be objective about your 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 realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have 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 gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
