Getting an appraisal from Appraisal-One before putting your Orange County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

Quite a few CA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified 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 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:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion 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 rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
