Putting a house on the market in or near Tangipahoa County? Contact Joseph Mier & Associates and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more LA homeowners are deciding 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
