For Sale By Owner (FSBO) Appraisal

You may be thinking of selling your own home, but pricing it does not come easy. Pricing your home to sell can be a difficult task. Sometime owners give realtors, brokers, or agents the power to decide on the price of their property. This move can be disadvantageous as these agents are not appraisers. They may feel their real estate knowledge gives them an eye for valuing property, but their appraisals are usually very inaccurate. Computer-generated appraisals, used by some agents, gather average home sales and listings in your area to indicate the price and may not be helpful either.

An accurate for sale by owner appraisal, such as the one you’ll receive from Alpharetta Home Appraiser, involves deep analysis to get the estimated current market value of your property. While the appraiser considers prior sales, prior expired and current listings, as well as trends in current market, your certified appraiser will also conduct a thorough examination of the interior and exterior of your home to assess a value unique to your property. If a home is FSBO, the appraisal is even more crucial step in preparing to list.

While you, as the owner of the property, know what features of your house should be highlighted when listing, your appraiser does not. Share with him or her the exact price for which you’re selling, and any upgrades or special features unique to your home that might increase its value.

Many homeowners believe that the appraisal is the buyer’s responsibility and only benefits them. Nothing could be further from the truth. Before the contract is ever signed, an appraisal gives you the most leverage in the negotiation process. A reliable appraisal by the trusted professionals at Alpharetta Home Appraiser provides you with a wellspring of knowledge that will make the sale of your home much easier.

An appraiser is a third-party agent who doesn’t have any vested interest in the market value of your property. Alpharetta Home Appraiser is hired to identify the value when you are selling your own home to avoid bias. While you want to get the most money out of selling your home yourself, buyers want to get the property at the lowest possible price. So, when setting a valuation, both parties will lean toward their own personal goals.

Our appraisers have the capacity to evaluate the estimated market value through a thorough assessment – regardless of whether the results will lean more in your favor or that of the buyer. The value given by an Alpharetta Home Appraiser will empower you when listing, as it will give you confidence in your asking price.
