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. 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 difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more 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 for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling 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 your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
