Getting an appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC before putting your Scottsdale home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few AZ 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is quite a bit 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 thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
