Getting an appraisal from Performance Appraisals Inc. before putting your Saint Johns 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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of FL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
