Putting a house on the market in or near Maricopa County? Contact West Valley Appraisal Services and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

More and more AZ homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard to take an objective look at 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 asking 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 the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, 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 instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
