Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Joseph Mier & Associates.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more LA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser.

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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment 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 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, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
