Selling your home in or near Duval County? Contact Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

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 to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard 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 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 your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
