Putting a house on the market in or near Gloucester County? Contact Preferred Appraisers, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

An increasing amount of NJ homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance 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 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.

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

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
