Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Bryant REA will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are choosing 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 the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
