Putting a house on the market in or near Orange County? Contact Premier Appraisal of SoCal and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of CA 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 for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated 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 rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
