Getting an appraisal from Bryant REA before putting your Alameda County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months.
