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.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few 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 for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers 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 prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
