Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Joseph Mier & Associates will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an 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 difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more LA homeowners are making the decision 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 for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get 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.

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

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
