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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised to discover their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an 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 gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
