Selling your home in or near Orange County? Contact Antares Appraisal Group, Inc. 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 a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more FL 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
