Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Robb Roberts 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 a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. You see, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. Something is only going to sell for what another person is willing to pay.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of California homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide
People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated impression 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
