An appraisal can help you to make an informed buying decision. We understand the complexities of buying a home and know what you are going through and will do our best to make it easier for you by giving you a high quality, professional appraisal that you can depend on! Buying a house is one of the largest investments most people will ever make.
In order to get the highest value for your dollar, you’ll want to make sure you’re paying Fair Market Value.
Choosing a certified property appraiser will give you an unbiased expert opinion of the value of your dream home — Before you submit an offer.
Along with reducing the risk of overpaying for the home, having a discussion with an appraiser before you sign a purchase contract is important for two different reasons.
First, you’ll be able to determine how a bank may look at the value of the property, which is very important if you are taking out a mortgage. This may give some insight into how a lender may determine the equity in the home. This could avoid a surprise later.
Second, you’ll have some hard data about the true nature of sales in the area to strengthen your offer or counter offer. This provides great support if (or when) you explain to the seller how you arrived at the price you are willing to pay.
If the appraisal comes back at a higher than the sale price, you’ll feel better about proceeding knowing you are paying a fair price for the property.
However, if the appraised value is lower than the asking price, you’ll be saved from paying too much for the home. You might use that information to negotiate with the seller in order to get the price down.
Choosing an experienced appraiser is imperative. As appraisers, we know all the factors that could influence a home’s value. Our experience and local knowledge makes all the difference in providing an accurate opinion of the market value.
