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

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

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

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 if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order 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, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
