Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Choice Appraisals, Inc..

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 difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

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

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But 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, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion 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, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
