Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from C R S Roberts.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it's very hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months.
