Getting an appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. before putting your Jefferson County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you 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 understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few LA 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 for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
