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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

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, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very 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 to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
