Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Preferred Appraisers, Inc..

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 a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of NJ 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. 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 explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers 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 hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
