Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Gary G. Maider.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on 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 FL 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, quickly and for top dollar, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very difficult 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
