Selling your home in or near Tangipahoa County? Contact Joseph Mier & Associates and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult 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, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
