Getting an appraisal from Joseph Mier & Associates before putting your Hammond home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

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 if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very hard 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 to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
