More and more LA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is much more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months.
