Putting a house on the market in or near Los Angeles County? Contact All City 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. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses 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 to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
