Selling your home in or near Maricopa County? Contact Veronica Whitman and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on 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 for it. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value. At the end of the day, your house is only worth the price another person is willing to give you.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of Arizona homeowners are making the decision 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate
People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of sitting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while getting nothing done.
