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. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving 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 help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal.

We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected.
