Selling your home in or near Saint Johns County? Contact Performance Appraisals Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand 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. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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 sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
