Putting a house on the market in or near Rock County? Contact JC Appraisal 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 an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value. Technically, something is only worth what another person is offering to give you.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more Wisconsin 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, it can be very difficult 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while getting nothing done.
