Selling your home in or near Polk County? Contact ASAP Appraisal Group and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of FL 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
