Putting a house on the market in or near Bergen County? Contact Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more NJ homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at 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.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes 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 allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
