Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Appraisal House, Inc..

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more FL 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 to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 sensible selling 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 interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
