Putting a house on the market 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 in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard 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 the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
