Putting a house on the market in or near San Bernardino County? Contact 1st Quality Appraisals, Inc 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 a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few CA homeowners are choosing 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, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home 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
