Putting a house on the market in or near Tangipahoa County? Contact Joseph Mier & Associates and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

More and more LA 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, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment 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 waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
