Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Joseph Mier & Associates.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

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

An increasing amount of LA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, 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 gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high 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
