Putting a house on the market in or near Orange County? Contact Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of FL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, it can be 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of 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 gathering dust 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
