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. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard 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 the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few LA homeowners are choosing 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 skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
