Selling your home in or near Orange County? Contact Premier Appraisal of SoCal and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays 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.

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

Selling on your own?

Quite a few 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 for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

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

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
