Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Premier Appraisal of SoCal will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting 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
