Selling your home in or near Riverside County? Contact Orangecrest Appraisal Service and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. After all, a home is only worth the price another person is willing to pay.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more California 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, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sound selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have originally netted. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
