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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of NJ 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 professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool once you have 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 delay a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment 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 in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
