Putting a house on the market in or near Palm Beach County? Contact Real Property Metrics and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Quite a few FL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

We will inform you of 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:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
