Getting an appraisal from 1st Quality Appraisals, Inc before putting your San Bernardino County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are choosing 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's 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 sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
