Putting a house on the market 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 a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

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 how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few LA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
