Getting an appraisal from Carter Appraisal Group L.L.C. before putting your Maricopa County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

You, as a homeowner, might be thinking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. Something is only going to sell for the price another person is willing to pay.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more Arizona homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, it's very hard 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
