Putting a house on the market in Polk County? Contact The Hohman Appraisal Company 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 pays 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 the nuances of local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. Something is only going to sell for the price another person is going to give you.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of Florida homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. You need an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sound asking price so your home will attract 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
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop
It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
