Putting a house on the market in or near Polk County? Contact ASAP Appraisal Group 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 you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

More and more FL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
