Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Big Island Appraisal Services.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of HI homeowners are choosing 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal 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 waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
