Selling your home in or near Bergen County? Contact Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays 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 understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

You're probably focused on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home. A home is only going to sell for what another person is going to give you.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of New Jersey homeowners are making the decision 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, what you need is a expert appraiser. You need an objective opinion, 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 tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate
People are surprised to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than sitting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
