Getting an appraisal from Sharon R. Cahill-Ervin before putting your Cocoa home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of FL homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, 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 instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
