Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Howard Goldstein and Associates.Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth every penny 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 understand real estate market forces.
You, as a homeowner, might be focused on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. You see, an appraisal assesses your home's market value. At the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for the price another person is going to give you.
Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agentQuite a few California homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, 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.
Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
