Getting an appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC before putting your Bergen County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few NJ homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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.

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

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of their home's value, 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. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
