Selling your home in or near Miami-Dade County? Contact Elite Appraisal, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. You see, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value. A home is only going to sell for the price another person is going to give you.

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

Quite a few Florida 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. You need an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 sound asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide
It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have originally gotten. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while getting nothing done.
