Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Fox Briar Appraisal Services.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
