Market Value or Replacement Value?

Inspection vs. appraisal - what you need to know

Have you ever wondered about the difference between a property appraisal and an inspection?
An appraisal is a formal assessment of the value of a home or property. The lender often requires an appraisal to make sure the loan amount doesn't exceed the value of the property being sold.
An inspection, on the other hand, is an assessment of a home's systems and structure, and it's designed to find any hidden problems with the home. The buyer normally makes an inspection a condition of the sale, then pays for the inspector to deliver a full report.
REALTORS don't formally appraise your property, but rather provide a free comparable market analysis (CMA) which can give you a good idea of what your home is currently worth.

Hire a Professional Real Estate Agent

A qualified, competent real estate agent will help you navigate the myriad of decisions that arise when buying and selling a home. An agent provides value to the homeowner in many ways: 

  • Pays for all marketing and advertising costs.
  • Adds experience and expertise in all aspects of the sales process including marketing, financing, negotiations and more. 
  • Handles all showings.
  • Brings a network of known, trusted real estate professionals. If your agent doesn't have the answer, he or she likely knows someone who does.
  • Always has your interests in mind so you always have someone on your side.
  • Can handle and advise on all price and contract negotiations.
  • Provides you with all the possible options and opportunities without holding back.
  • Gives an unbiased, realistic view of your home and your options. Unlike buyers and sellers, an agent has no emotional attachment to property.
  • Has the knowledge to help you ask the right questions.
  • Being a third party, potential buyers are more likely to tell your agent the truth about your home, even if it is unflattering. This objective viewpoint will help you make the necessary changes to get your home sold.
  • Your time is valuable. A real estate agent allows you to spend your time how you want.
