Getting an appraisal from Performance Appraisals Inc. before putting your Saint Johns County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more FL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal.

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
