Getting an appraisal from Premier Appraisal Group before putting your Chesapeake City County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on putting your house on the market soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

You're probably, as a homeowner, fixated on the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only worth the price another person is willing to give you.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

More and more Virginia homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, it's very hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
