Home Seller Services

If you are a seller in Florida, it would be wise to make a small investment in property appraisal.  Professional appraisers study real estate values on a day to day basis and they fully understand the ins and outs of the real estate market.  For a small price, you can get a professional valuation of the true market value of your home that could pay off for you in the long run.


Appraisal Prior to Listing

If you have enlisted a real estate agent to help sell your property, the first thing they’ll probably do is provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that lists sales in your area.  This will give you a starting point in determining your “Listing Price” and will help minimize your home’s time on the market.

But even the most experienced real estate agent can’t evaluate your home the way an appraiser can. As an objective third party, we can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal that gives you and your agent an accurate description of your home’s features. We also provide a detailed analysis of the most recent, similar comparable sales, or “comps.” In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home’s condition inside and out
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer or his mortgage company to get the appraisal done on their own
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.


Selling Your Home FSBO

More and more homeowners today are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. Selling your home by this method can end up saving you a potential “hefty” commission (industry average is 5-7% of the home’s selling price). Plus many FSBO sellers feel that they have more control in the process of selling their home since they’re in essence making all the rules. But selling your home on your own will require a significant amount of "homework" if you're going to do it right. One piece of advice that is consistently given by the experts in selling your home FSBO....Do NOT "Overprice" Your Home! It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.
