Putting a house on the market in or near Alameda County? Contact Bryant REA and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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 negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an exaggerated 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 in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust 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.
