Putting a house on the market in or near Orange County? Contact Appraisal-One and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 realistic 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
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
