Getting an appraisal from ASAP Appraisal Group before putting your Polk County home on the market saves you time and money.

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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

More and more FL homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help 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. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of 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.
