Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run!

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of Hawaii 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
