For most home buyers, purchasing real estate is a financial decision that will greatly impact their future. We feel that such an important process should be accompanied by the steady hand and knowledge of a professional; a professional who deals exclusively with home purchases. Securing a buyer broker is an investment within an investment. When you work with one of our buyer brokers, rest assured that you will never overlook a nuance or detail that can severely impact your financial future.

The cost of an appraisal does not compare to the cost of overlooking the importance of seeking professional calculations when making a capital purchase.

So you’ve decided to list your home for sale. If you are like most people your home is your biggest investment and most valuable asset. You may have spent much time and money improving and maintaining your home. The decision to list your home for sale may have been an emotional one, but the list price itself needs to be based on facts. List too low and you may sell quickly but you might be losing money. List too high and you may sit for months going unsold.

If you are a typically motivated seller and you expose your home on the open market to typically motivated buyers, your home should sell at “Market Value”. This is the most likely selling price based upon recent sales of similar homes in your neighborhood. An appraiser is an expert at determining market value.

You may plan on using the services of a local realtor. They should have extensive first-hand knowledge of the market in your neighborhood. Remember, a realtor’s compensation is directly related to if and how much your home sells for. A local appraiser also has extensive knowledge of the market area: in addition they also know current lending guidelines regarding appraisals. Most buyers will be taking a mortgage in order to complete the purchase. Lenders have very specific rules regarding the comparable sales which can be use in a report. Realtors are not always aware of these guidelines. If your buyer is applying for an FHA insured loan there are additional guidelines regarding the physical condition of your property as well. An FHA approved appraiser can make you aware of any defects which need to be corrected prior to listing your home. This will help eliminate the chances of the deal falling through.

By using the services of a licensed or certified local appraiser you will be getting an impartial professional opinion of your homes condition and current market value. They will have first-hand knowledge of current lending guidelines and can take them into consideration when researching and completing your appraisal.

Many people are surprised when they find out their home is worth much more than they estimated, allowing them to list higher than planned. Some owners have an over inflated vision of what their value is and an accurate appraisal helped them to realistically price their home for sale

A small investment up front may save you a lot of time and money going forward!

Chances are pretty good that you’re paying more in property taxes than you should be. According to the National Taxpayers Union, as many as 60% of properties in the U.S. are assessed at a higher amount than their current value. Before you begin the appeal process, be sure to research how your local government assesses property values. If you are going to contest your property taxes, a strong, accurate, real estate appraisal is a vital component of your argument. Your property tax appeal must be based on accurate information.

In our experience we find the following are the biggest reasons for tax problems:

1. Disagreement with the property value;

2. Misunderstanding of the size or condition of the land;

3. The county ignoring the impact of wetlands, creeks and, slopes on the subject property;

4. Misunderstanding of the home’s condition, quality, amount of remodeling or, view;

5. Misunderstanding of the “valuation date” for tax purposes;

6. Incorrect information regarding the sales price or condition of other
properties that were used to establish the subject’s value.

7. Misunderstanding of the property zoning;
