Getting an appraisal from ASAP Appraisal Group before putting your Lakeland home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more FL homeowners are choosing 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 to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. You need 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting 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.
