Selling your home in or near Tangipahoa County? Contact Joseph Mier & Associates and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of 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, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few LA homeowners are choosing 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 for top dollar, you need a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
