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. 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 a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more FL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
