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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few CA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
