Selling your home 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 an appraisal. 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 an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few CA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But 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 can be very difficult to be objective about your 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 realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it 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 rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
