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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

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

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of 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 if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home 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
